LV Obtains Largest Personal Injury Verdict in Ohio History

On September 28, 2018, Gerald Leeseberg and the trial team at Leeseberg & Valentine obtained a $44.5 million verdict on behalf of Bradley Metts and his family. It is believed to be the largest verdict in Ohio history compensating an individual for injuries caused by negligent conduct. Bradley, who is now 14 years old, was injured when Athens Medical Lab failed to timely return stat laboratory blood tests causing a delay in diagnosis, which allowed a rare infection to progress from his ear to his brain. This infection caused significant pressure to build up in his head and resulted in a catastrophic brain injury. While Bradley is still cognitively intact and able to communicate, he is completely paralyzed and has no voluntary movements of any muscles other than those in his face and eyes – a condition known as “locked-in syndrome”. Bradley requires 24/7/365 nursing care and this verdict will go a long way in helping him obtain the care he needs to keep him safe and thrive.

Congratulations to our clients, Bradley, Danny, and Nikki Metts, and the LV Trial Team of Gerry Leeseberg, Craig Tuttle, and John Markus!
