Scott E. Ortiz and David E. Shields defended Dr. Eric Dash and Carbon County Memorial Hospital, in the matter of Elaine Loeffel v. Eric Dash, MD, and Carbon County Memorial Hospital. This matter was tried in Carbon County District Court, during March of 2019, before the Honorable Judge Dawnessa Snyder. This case consisted of four trial days, involving claims of significant lifelong disability, due to podiatry malpractice. Believing she was the victim of a failed toe surgery and abandonment, Ms. Loeffel also claimed that her right great toe could only warrant a 20-30˚ extension.
Because Dr. Dash was unable to testify at trial, Scott Ortiz and David Shields won this trial solely on cross-examination and our own experts’ testimony. DEFENSE VERDICT. (Opposing Counsel Fred Harrison.)
