Dan Ryan¬†obtained a defense verdict for internist in Philadelphia County. Plaintiff’s husband died at the age of forty two as a result of his coronary artery disease (CAD). In her Complaint, Plaintiff alleged Mr. Ryan’s client (an Internist) failed to appreciate the significance of cardiac studies taken in the months and years leading up to the death and that he should have done more to decrease or eliminate some of the risk factors Plaintiff’s husband had for developing CAD, including smoking and poor diet. The defense maintained Plaintiff’s husband’s death was both unpredictable and unpreventable over the four day trial, and the jury agreed. After deliberating just over two hours, they found Mr. Ryan’s client was not negligent.
