Pretzel & Stouffer Attorneys Obtain Dismissal for General Surgeon
Pretzel & Stouffer attorneys, John Smith and Ryan Shupe, recently secured a victory for their general surgery client in a case alleging medical malpractice. The plaintiff claimed that a surgical procedure and postoperative care caused the patient’s death.
John and Ryan undertook discovery efforts for several years of litigation. These efforts included obtaining concessions from treating physicians and experts, as well as disclosure of expert opinions of their own that demonstrated the appropriateness of the general surgeon’s medical care. The client was dismissed with prejudice prior to trial and with no money paid on the client’s behalf.
