On March 15, 2022, after a four-day jury trial in the District Court of Douglas County, Nebraska, LDM attorneys Pat Vipond and Mike Storey obtained a unanimous defense verdict in a medical malpractice case. The case, which began in 2014 and was the subject of two appeals to the Nebraska Court of Appeals and the Nebraska Supreme Court, included allegations that the defendant failed to diagnose Epstein-Barr encephalitis, a rare complication of the viral infection that causes mononucleosis. As a result of brain swelling [encephalitis], the child underwent a craniotomy, was hospitalized for more than a month and underwent physical, speech and occupational therapy for brain injuries caused by the virus. During the trial, plaintiffs asked the jury to award more than $7 million in damages for the child’s injuries, alleging that the child should have been hospitalized earlier. Mr. Vipond and Mr. Storey presented to the jury evidence that their client met the standard of care in evaluating and treating the patient and that the child’s clinical course of treatment, including the craniotomy, was unavoidable because of the unobservable and unavoidable complication. After four hours of deliberation, the jury came to its unanimous decision of defense.
