On Friday, September 23, a Cumberland County jury awarded Joshua Desjardins of Bowdoinham $5 Million, as part of a unanimous verdict that found Mid Coast Hospital of Brunswick, Maine was liable for the medical negligence of BlueWater Emergency Partners of Maine. This is the first civil jury trial in Cumberland County since the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic. Attorney Travis Brennan represented Desjardins.
On December 26, 2018, Josh went to the Mid Coast Hospital Walk in Clinic with warning signs of a life-threatening condition. A BlueWater medical provider working at the Mid Coast Hospital Walk in Clinic negligently overlooked the warning signs and, as a result, Josh’s illness progressed to the point that it caused him to suffer numerous strokes and require 31 days of life support. Although Josh is blessed to have survived, the medical negligence has left him with life-altering injuries with which he will struggle for the rest of his life.
