HOLMES v. LEVINE

In a wrongful-death action based on alleged medical malpractice by a radiologist, the trial court erred in refusing to give the plaintiff?s requested jury instruction on the issue of proximate causation. The trial court did not err either in overruling plaintiff?s objection that certain testimony of a treating physician did not satisfy the requirements of Code § 8.01-399(B) or in sustaining an objection to testimony elicited on cross-examination of a medical expert witness concerning the cause of death listed in a death certificate. The judgment is reversed in part and affirmed in part, and the case is remanded for a new trial on all issues.
