Johnston of Clark, Mize & Linville, Chartered recently obtained a defense verdict from a jury on behalf of our client, a urologist, in a medical malpractice case in which the plaintiff alleged that the physician misdiagnosed and mistreated a renal abscess.  The plaintiff presented expert testimony from physicians from northern California and Pittsburgh. They asked the jury to award more than $2.4 million in damages.  Following a seven-day trial and after deliberating nearly five hours, the jury returned a verdict in favor of our client.
