Partner Bill Settles Obtains Verdict in Favor of Orthopedic Surgeons

LDM Partner Bill Settles recently completed a weeklong medical malpractice jury trial in the Lancaster County District Court.  The jury returned a verdict in favor of LDM’s clients, two orthopedic surgeons from Lincoln, NE.  The case involved the treatment of a complex ankle fracture in a fifteen year-old patient.  The patient developed a growth arrest in the ankle and required surgery to correct the resulting deformity.  He went on to suffer wound healing problems and developed an MRSA infection.  The resulting complications led to permanent impairment of the foot and ankle and nearly resulted in amputation.  Mr. Settles successfully defended the case against one of the premier plaintiffs’ attorneys in Nebraska.  The Firm congratulates Mr. Settles and the entire LDM team who worked on the case.
