Unanimous Defense Verdict for Radiologist and Radiology Practice
On July 20, 2022, Jack Shusted and Garrett Field obtained a unanimous defense verdict on behalf of their clients, a radiologist and radiology practice, after an eight-day trial in the Lackawanna County Court of Common Pleas in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
The trial centered on Plaintiff’s allegations that the radiologist failed to identify a pancreatic head mass on a MRI. The defense maintained that the radiologist interpreted the MRI and reported the findings in accordance with radiological standards of care. Mr. Shusted and Mr. Field were able to demonstrate that the radiologist’s MRI report met all standards of care and that no action or inaction on the radiologist’s part caused the Plaintiff’s injury.
