On Friday, August 17, 2018, after three weeks of trial, a jury announced a unanimous defense verdict in favor of a Lincoln Derr client.
This decision is the fourth defense verdict in medical malpractice trials for Lincoln Derr so far this year. The attorneys representing the plaintiff asked the jury for between 4 million and 6 million dollars and implored the jury to send a message to the community that this is not the kind of care we want physicians providing in Charlotte, North Carolina. The jury saved our client 6 million dollars and sent a message to our client and physicians throughout North Carolina that the care rendered is exactly the kind of care our communities want our physicians providing.
Congratulations to Sara Lincoln, Scott Addison, and Erin Alfaro for successfully defending our client. The jurors interviewed post-trial shared they were impressed with the defense team’s preparation, organization, and professionalism all of which contributed to a favorable outcome for our client.
