The Supreme Court of Alabama has affirmed a $3.2 medical malpractice wrongful death verdict in Health Care Authority for Baptist Health, an affiliate of UAB Health System, d/b/a Baptist Medical Center East v. Davis.

The original jury verdict dated back to June 12, 2009. In that trial, the jury ruled in favor of the plaintiff, Kay Davis, who sued for the wrongful death of her mother, Lauree Ellison, who died on November 8, 2005.

“This is a great victory for the citizens of Alabama in that their inalienable right to a jury trial has been preserved and protected by our Supreme Court,” states Hare Wynn  partner, Shay Samples, lead attorney in the case.
