Husch Blackwell, St. Louis
Greg Minana’s defense wins on behalf of health care providers regularly appear in Missouri Lawyers Media’s annual list of top defense wins.
Late last year, he fended off an alleged $1.8 million in damages sought from a nursing facility that was sued for wrongful death after a resident died as a result of alleged neglect.
Other recent cases include the successful defense in 2021 of a doctor and anesthesiology group blamed for a woman’s death during surgery, a jury verdict in 2019 finding no liability for a woman’s death after surgery to fix her pacemaker, and a 2018 win for a group of medical providers alleged to have injured a man’s esophagus following bariatric surgery. The latter case, from Cape Girardeau County, was the second-largest defense win of that year as tracked by Missouri Lawyers Media.
Minana is a former chair of Husch Blackwell’s products liability department. He earned his law degree from the University of Missouri in 1990.
