THREE WINS IN THREE WEEKS FOR SANDBERG, PHOENIX & VON GONTARD'S KEN BEAN
Ken Bean of Sandberg, Phoenix & von Gontard, P.C. has received three straight defense verdicts. The first suit was a wrongful death medical malpractice action against a neurologist over the alleged interaction between Provigil and Coumadin. Assisted by Jennifer Miller-Louw, this case resulted in a directed verdict for the defendant doctor at the close of the plaintiff's evidence. During the next week, Ken, along with Chellie Butel, successfully defended our hospital client on an MRSA death case. Their efforts resulted in a 12-0 defense verdict after 40 minutes of deliberation. Ken's third win involved a medical malpractice suit against a general surgeon for a bile duct injury during a laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The jury was out 35 minutes and returned a unanimous defense verdict. Interestingly, afterwards the jury said they voted for the defense within the first minute but then wanted to eat the lunches the clerk brought!
