Michael Paul Ringwood, Esq., Successfully Defends a Community-Based Hospital and ER Physician in Rome, New York

Michael Paul Ringwood, Esq., secured a “no cause of action” after a seven day jury trial in Rome, New York. Mike defended a local community-based hospital and one of their ER physicians. The case involved a 33 year old full-time employed, married mother of two daughters, ages 9 and 12, who came into the hospital facility via ambulance at midnight and was pronounced in the OR approximately one hour later due to hypovolemic shock from an undetermined abdominal bleed. The major issue in the case involved whether or not Type O-negative blood, rather that saline, should have been ordered and transfused in the Emergency Room. The jury deliberated for about 90 minutes and returned a unanimous verdict in favor of the hospital and the doctor.
