Johnny Givens and Laurel Li Harris secure victory at the Mississippi Supreme Court

After many years of a hard fought litigation and appeal, the team of Johnny Givens and Laurel Li Harris secured a victory at the Mississippi Supreme Court.  On December 13, 2018, the Supreme Court denied Greenwood Leflore Hospital’s Petition for Writ of Certiorari thereby affirming the $185,000 medical malpractice verdict obtained in September 2015.  The client was Jacqueline Deal and after an accident that caused a significant wound on her leg, the medical staff at Greenwood Leflore Hospital negligently left a 4×4 gauze in her wound. This caused a significant delay in the wound’s healing process thereby leading to increased medical bills and pain and suffering.  Further details on the case and the Court of Appeals decision can be found at the following link:
