AKC Law litigation Partner Robert Schartz and Associate Gregory Schreiber successfully defended a Norfolk, Nebraska podiatrist in a medical liability action in Madison County District Court. The Plaintiffs sought over $3.0 million from the Defendant podiatrist and a Co-Defendant pharmacist, alleging negligence in prescribing, and filling post-operative medications.

At the close of the Plaintiffs’ presentation of their case, Schartz and counsel for the pharmacist argued and secured a directed verdict on the issue of causation. This resulted in a complete dismissal of the case with prejudice for both our client podiatrist and the Co-Defendant pharmacist.

This win comes on the heels of the dismissal of a medical negligence case in March after 4 years of litigation and a complete defense verdict in a wrongful death jury trial at the end of 2022.
