Sun Choy and Kevin Stone recently obtained a favorable verdict in a Georgia trial court. In a case of admitted liability, surveillance video captured an 86-year-old patient falling from a stretcher while being attended to by emergency medical technicians. The patient was bleeding profusely due to complications from cancer surgery. As a result of the fall, the plaintiff claimed head trauma, as well as permanent injuries to her shoulder and hand. Plaintiff asked the jury to render a verdict of $2.5 million. The jury awarded $144,498 which was less than the $150,000 statutory offer of settlement made six months before trial.
