Anesthesiologist Found Not Liable for Malpractice

The jury returned a verdict in favor of Bill Weiler’s client, an anesthesiologist, in a medical malpractice trial in CookCounty. The plaintiff had alleged that he suffered a brain injury after he aspirated during surgery, in part, he claimed, because Mr. Weiler’s client failed to use proper technique during the induction of anesthesia. However, the jury found that Mr. Weiler’s client complied with the standard of care and nothing he did or failed to do injured the plaintiff in any way.
