RisCassi and Davis, P.C. BBB Business Review

$504,750 Verdict – Medical Malpractice – Patient suicide

David W. Cooney of RisCassi & Davis won a verdict of $504,750 in a medical malpractice case tried in Hartford Superior Court.  The jury found against a physician who prescribed medication to a patient for a recurrence of depression even though he had never seen the patient. The prescription was ordered by telephone conversation.  The patient committed suicide by taking an overdose of the medication and her family brought a claim due to the physicians failure to properly evaluate his patient before prescribing medication. An appeal was taken by the doctor, but the verdict was unanimously upheld by the Connecticut Supreme Court.
