Ryan Deane defends case involving widow’s loss of her husband on their wedding night

Plaintiff was the widow of a man who died in a motorcycle accident on their wedding night. He received major internal injuries including an open book fracture of the pelvis. After resuscitative efforts, including surgery, failed, a wrongful death claim was filed. Plaintiff claimed that the emergency room doctor, as part of the trauma team, mismanaged the patient’s electrolytes and hemodynamics. After a three-week trial, the jury returned a defense verdict.
