Murphy & Landon, a Wilmington litigation boutique, won a $180,000 verdict in a medical malpractice case in Delaware Superior Court. The lawsuit, in which the plaintiff Cheryl Debussy sued Delaware general surgeon Glenn E. Graybeal, M.D., was tried by Murphy & Landon lawyers Kelley Huff and Roger Landon.
Ms. Debussy was injured after Dr. Graybeal negligently cut her common bile duct during a gallbladder removal surgery. At trial, the jury heard expert medical testimony that cutting the common bile duct was negligence. The jury agreed, finding that Dr. Graybeal’s negligence caused Ms. Debussy pain and suffering and additional medical treatment.
Trial was held in Sussex County, over four days, before Superior Court Judge, the Honorable Richard F. Stokes.
