$10 Million Verdict Against UPMC for Medical Malpractice
Berger & Lagnese lawyers obtained a verdict of $10,000,000 against UPMC Shadyside from a jury in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Allegheny County, PA).
This verdict is the largest ever verdict in a medical malpractice case in Allegheny County and the largest ever medical malpractice verdict against UPMC.
The verdict was for the lost wages of a 24 year old accountant, Mike Rettger, who died as a result of the UPMC's negligence.
After several years of appeals, UPMC finally paid nearly $15 million to satisfy this verdict.
Previously, Berger & Lagnese attorneys had obtained a $2,500,000 verdict for Mike's Mom's loss of her son. After almost 3 years of appeals, UPMC paid over $3,200,000 to satisfy that first case.
