Defense Verdict for Radiologist

August 24, 2022

On August 22, 2022, Jacqueline Schneiders and Jack Shusted obtained a defense verdict on behalf of their client, a radiologist, after a four-day trial in the Court of Common Pleas of Montgomery County in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Plaintiff claimed that the radiologist failed to identify a fibula fracture on an x-ray and to recommend further imaging studies. Several weeks later, Plaintiff was found to have a displaced, comminuted fibula fracture. Post-surgery healing was delayed for several years due to nonunion.

Mrs. Schneiders and Mr. Shusted showed the jury how the radiologist met the standard of care in reading and reporting on the x-ray, and that there was no causal connection to the subsequent displaced fracture.
