Directed Verdict for Partner Michael T. Colavecchio

Lewis Johs partner Michael T. Colavecchio obtained a directed verdict in favor of his client, a pain management physician, on June 15, 2017.  In the medical malpractice trial that spanned nearly two months, plaintiff claimed that the physician committed malpractice by failing to discern that plaintiff’s hip and thigh pain were caused by a MRSA infection of the hip.  The 42 year old Plaintiff’s condition worsened until he was as admitted to the hospital with Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation and found to have a septic hip and osteomyelitis of the femoral head.  He underwent a long course of surgeries, including a hip replacement.

Although the court denied Mr. Colavecchio’s motion for a directed verdict at the close of plaintiff’s case, the motion was granted when he renewed the motion at the close of the defense case.
