Robert Adams, Class of 1998

Robert Adams and his firm of Mainor Eglet won a $162.5 million dollar verdict for their plaintiffs in a 2nd Hepatitis C trial in Clark County, Nevada.

Plaintiff Anne Arnold was exposed to the virus hepatitis C when a contaminated jumbo 50mL infusion vial of the anesthesia medication Propofol was reused during a colonoscopy procedure at the Endoscopy Center of Southern Nevada on July 13, 2007. This is the second trial following the largest notification by the Clark County Health Department that 50,000 residents of Nevada may be infected with the deadly virus hepatitis C.

The lawsuit filed by Mainor Eglet alleges design defect, breach of implied warranty for a particular purpose, failure to properly warn by sending a Dear Health Care Professional letter and duty to monitor.
