Kelley | Uustal Obtains $1.457 Million Medical Malpractice Verdict

A Palm Beach County jury returned a verdict of $1.457 Million against Brian Coleman, M.D., his physician assistant Justin Bartl, PA-C, and South Palm Orthopedics, P.A. of Delray Beach, Florida. The jury found that they were negligent in their care and treatment of Mrs. Jeanne Marks, pertaining to reconstructive surgery of her forefoot that took place in May 2014 at Delray Medical Center. This ultimately led to her death on July 3, 2014.

Peter Spillis and Bonnie Navin, partners at the law firm of Kelley/Uustal, obtained the verdict after jurors heard seven days of testimony and deliberated for over nine hours before returning the verdict in favor of the family of Jeanne Marks. The case was tried before The Honorable Meenu Sasser of the Palm Beach Circuit Court, from May 1-11, 2017.
