$6 Million Dollar Medical Malpractice Settlement
Venue: St. Clair County, IL
Verdict: $6 million
Date: September 8, 2017
Our client was rendered paraplegic following a series of errors during spine surgery – – confined to a wheelchair. During surgery, the casing of the spinal cord was so severely damaged that, in the words of the defendant doctor, “nerves just spewed everywhere.”
As a condition of the settlement, our office had to agree to keep confidential the defendant’s deposition transcript, and to never sue the defendant surgeon again.
