Another Defense Verdict for Andrew Kaplan and Aaronson Rappaport Client
October 2017 –
Plaintiff alleged defendant orthopedic surgeon removed too much distal clavicle in performing a Mumford procedure for AC joint arthrosis, causing a ligament injury and AC joint instability requiring a total reconstruction eight months later. Mr. Kaplan and his team were able to prove that the reconstructive procedure was done to stabilize the joint secondary to not unexpected dynamic forces post-op, as opposed to excess distal clavicle excision or ligament injury. The jury returned a defense verdict in 20 minutes.
