In October of 2014, Dave Faulkner obtained a not guilty verdict in favor of a cardiologist in a two week jury trial, successfully asserting a “causation only” defense. Plaintiff asked the jury to award $7 million in the claimed wrongful death of an employed, 49 year old, married, mother of two children. Even though the physician admitted an error in treatment, the defense proved to the jury that the error was not the cause of the patient’s death.
