Anne Farrell's husband, Nathan, died after a heart transplant. There is reason to believe the equipment used in the surgery was defective and led to Nathan's untimely death. Anne is seeking damages from both the hospital and Dr. Madden claiming negligence and medical malpractice. Additionally, the plaintiff is suing Strong Line claiming both negligence and product liability due to the defective suture. All three defendants refute this claim and are contesting the amount of damages the plaintiff is seeking, maintaining that she cannot affirm her husband's quality of life would have remained intact postsurgery. There are eight witnesses for the plaintiffs and five witnesses for the defendants.
