On October 15, 2010, Faulkner Law Firm obtained a jury verdict on behalf of a family practice physician in a hard fought two-week trial. Plaintiff alleged that the physician had failed to appreciate signs of a pulmonary embolus leading to the death of a 38-year-old employed, married father of two children (ages three and four). The defense team, David Faulkner, Roger Gustafson and Brandi Chudoba, successfully argued that the patient’s presentation at the clinic with a history of shortness of breath was relatively benign and did not involve the classic symptoms of pulmonary embolus.
