He has also handled commercial class action cases. David has tried numerous cases to jury verdict, including a unanimous verdict against a hospital for $8,800,000, with a finding of malice, for causing a patient’s stroke (Hinton v. Baylor University Medical Center) and a $3,770,000 verdict, with a unanimous finding of gross negligence, against a podiatrist for causing crippling injuries to a child’s foot.
