Another tragic series of medical errors caused an innocent woman to suffer horrible injury during surgery and rendered her a paraplegic. In order to provide for the medical care and services needed for her remaining lifetime and to compensate her loss of the quality of life, a jury awarded $3.5 million.
The injured patient demonstrated that her doctors committed medical malpractice during surgery which led to significant blood loss and spinal damage. She went to the doctors for surgery to repair blocked arteries, but her doctors failed to meet accepted medical standards and used an inappropriate grafting technique. What took place in the operating room left her unable to walk and with constant pain in her legs. For decades, she will bear the consequences of these needless medical errors.
