Attorneys Michael Pitt and Mary Kay Plyter-Eigner recently received a defense verdict on behalf of an anesthesiologist and pain management physician after a one week trial in Montgomery County. Plaintiff alleged that her epidural steroid injection was performed using a steroid with preservatives and that the epidural needle entered the thecal sac, causing her to suffer chemical meningitis, manifesting as significant migraine headaches and associated symptoms. The evidence supported the defense that Plaintiff had a significant pre-existing headache condition and that the procedure was performed properly using a well-known, widely used and accepted steroid medication. After four days of evidence and closing arguments, the jury deliberated for an hour and a half, finding for the defendant anesthesiologist.
