Starnes Davis Florie Attorneys MacKenzie & Huntley Obtain Defense Verdict for Addiction Medicine Doctor

Bob MacKenzie and Todd Huntley successfully defended an addiction medicine physician in a case involving the treatment of a patient detoxing at an in-patient substance abuse treatment facility.  When presented with information from the nursing staff regarding a change in the patient's condition, the physician appropriately facilitated a transfer via ambulance to a nearby medical center that could provide the needed higher level of care.  Due to unforseeable circumstances, the patient expired during the transfer.  Upon completion of the over one week trial, the jury determined that the care and treatment provided by the defendant was reasonable and appropriate.
