Szprychel v. Emergency Medicine Physician


Whether an emergency medicine physician met the standard of care in his treatment of an 88 year old female patient presenting to the emergency department after being treated by her primary care physician for a painful, infected laceration between her right fourth and fifth toes. More than three weeks after the care at issue, the plaintiff was found to have substantial chronic peripheral arterial disease with multiple occlusions in her right leg that could not be revascularized. Plaintiff eventually underwent three right lower extremity amputation surgeries, culminating in an above knee amputation. The case was tried for three days in the Porter Circuit/Superior Court with the Honorable Mary DeBoer presiding.


Defense verdict.

Louis W. Voelker, III
