Medical Malpractice Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Agati, Taryn


AC44065 - Williams v. Lawrence + Memorial Hospital, Inc. ("In this medical malpractice action, the plaintiff, Christopher Williams, administrator of the estate of John Williams (decedent), appeals from the judgment of the trial court, rendered after a jury trial, in favor of the defendant, Peter Bertolozzi, an emergency medicine physician. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the trial court abused its discretion by declining to admit into evidence certain excerpts from the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) guidelines, which the plaintiff argues were admissible under ยง 8-3 (8) of the Connecticut Code of Evidence. We disagree and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
