The case was brought by the family of a 74 year old patient of the defendant cardiologist, who was treated with Coumadin for his atrial fibrillation, and subsequently died of an intracranial hemorrhage. The family alleged that the cardiologist failed to properly monitor the patient’s coagulation status by frequent blood tests. After a three day trial, the jury deliberated only a little over an hour before returning its verdict for our client.
