On June 8th we were part of a successful trial of a medical malpractice case in Clark County.

The case was against a family practice doctor who failed to diagnosis fatal sepsis and sent a patient back home. The case was difficult becauseother hospitals after the misdiagnosis also made mistakes that contributed to the young man’s death. Matt was co-counsel and trial consultant with Bo Bolus and Nick Naiser of the Bolus Law Firm. They had worked diligently on the case for seven years prior to the trial.

Winning a medical malpractice case in this state is like pushing a rock uphill. Indiana has more protections for doctors than any other state. They have almost unlimited money to defend cases and hire experts. Hardest of all, almost all jurors like doctors and give them the benefit of the doubt.  We are proud of the work we did on this case.  Bo and Nick are amazing trial lawyers who pursued the case with skill, diligence, and tenacity.  

Over the last few years Matt has started to do more trial consulting with other attorneys. He ran focus groups for this case, helped formulate trial strategy, argued objections, conducted jury questioning, and handled rebuttal closing. It’s good to be part of a well oiled team.
