Court: Supreme Court of Missouri

Docket: SC98327

Opinion Date: March 2, 2021

Judge: George W. Draper, III

Areas of Law: Personal Injury

The Supreme Court affirmed the judgment of the circuit court in favor of Plaintiffs on their claim that Missouri Delta Medical Center (MDMC) and two physicians it employed caused their father’s death, holding that no error occurred. Plaintiffs, as family representatives, brought this suit for the wrongful death of Decedent, raising issues related to Decedent’s need for surgery and the quality of his post-surgical care, which led to his death. The jury returned a verdict in the Plaintiffs’ favor. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) Plaintiffs submitted substantial evidence to support the submission of aggravating circumstances damages to the jury; (2) the circuit court did not err in submitting the instruction for aggravating circumstances damages; (3) Plaintiffs established “but for” causation; and (4) Plaintiffs were not entitled to reversal on their remaining claims of error.
