A jury inHartford Superior Court found cardiologist Kathleen Kennedy M.D. of Central Connecticut Cardiologists in Hartford negligent in her care of Peter Halvorson of Coventry in 2009 and awarded Mr. Halvorson $1.65 million in damages.  Attorney Jim Bartolini, from the Hartford Law Firm of RisCassi and Davis, represented Mr. Halvorson.

Mr. Halvorson was injured as a result of a medication Dr. Kennedy prescribed at too high a dosing amount for him while he was an inpatient at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford for hip replacement surgery. As a direct result of the improperly prescribed medication, Halvorson suffered excessive bleeding at the operative site, resulting in a hematoma, with resulting compression of nerves in his left leg, and nerve injury, muscle atrophy, alteration of gait, and significant lower extremity disability.
