$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.
