Case History

Juno v. Douglas A. Amare, M.D., et al. | Baldwin County, Alabama, Circuit Court | Case No. CV-2008-901100 — Cunningham Bounds’ attorneys obtained a $140 million wrongful death verdict against Thomas Hospital and its outsourced medical transcription companies in this case involving outsourced medical transcription services.

When Sharron Juno was discharged from Thomas Hospital in Fairhope, Alabama, her doctor at the hospital dictated a discharge summary in which he stated that Ms. Juno’s bedtime dosage of insulin was eight (8) units.  The companies in India that transcribed this discharge summary recorded the bedtime dose as eighty (80) units, and delivered the transcription to the hospital.  When Ms. Juno was admitted to a rehabilitation facility after falling at home and the hospital delivered the erroneous medication transcription to the rehabilitation facility, orders were given that incorrectly specified the eighty (80) units of insulin at bedtime.  As a result, Ms. Juno was given the wrong insulin dosage causing her to suffer full cardiopulmonary arrest, and causing her to remain unconscious until her death.
Dirt Inc. v. ShawCor Ltd., et al. | Mobile County Circuit Court | Case No. CV-05-001523 — Cunningham Bounds represented Dirt Inc., a construction and demolition waste landfill, in its allegations against ShawCor Ltd., Halliburton and others for misrepresenting the true nature of their disposed waste which was in fact, hazardous and toxic to the environment. The jury found that ShawCor Ltd. and others were liable and awarded Dirt Inc. $108 million.
Leytham v. Kia Motors of America | Mobile County, Alabama Circuit Court | Case No. CV-2006-002263 — The attorneys of Cunningham Bounds achieved a $40 million dollar wrongful death verdict against Kia Motors of America, Inc., Kia Motors Corporation, and DBI/Celltrion. The case involved the A97 seatbelt buckle in model years 1995 through 2000 Kia Sephia and Sportage vehicles. These buckles were found to have a safety defect that caused them to be susceptible to “false latching” so that users think they are properly belted when in reality they are not. In this case, a 16-year-old driver lost control of her 1999 Kia Sephia and it crashed. During the accident her seatbelt buckle failed, she was ejected from the vehicle and died from her injuries.
