Miller v. BeyerAnnotate this Case
Plaintiff, as personal representative for Connie Scribner, filed a wrongful death complaint against Defendants, Dr. Sean Beyer and Emergency Medical Physicians, P.C., alleging that Defendants’ care of Scribner fell below the standard of care. The first trial ended in a mistrial, and a second trial was held. The jury rendered a verdict in favor of Defendants. Plaintiff appealed and Defendants cross-appealed. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the district court did not abuse its discretion in declaring a mistrial or in admitting the testimony of Dr. Beyer and Defendants’ emergency medicine expert concerning certain medical tests and a pneumonia severity index.
