G. Sues and Couvillon successful again in a medical malpractice jury trial

October 10, 2010

Eugene J. Sues and Sarah Spruill Couvillon continued their streak of successfully defending physicians in a jury trial in Concordia Parish.

This medical malpractice action involved allegations that the surgeon breached the standard of care in performing a laparoscopic cholecystectomy which required the patient to undergo additional surgeries and eventually resulted in his death.  After deliberation, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the physician, finding he did not breach the applicable standard of care.
