Medical Malpractice: Orthopedic Surgeon & Practice Pay Insurance Policy Limits for Surgical Error
Our client, a 28 year old Air Force helicopter crew chief, suffered a bisected median nerve high in his right shoulder area. The injury occurred when his surgeon mistook the nerve for the tendon he was planning to cut. The nerve injury left our client's arm useless, but incredibly painful. After filing suit and disclosing our expert witnesses, the defense admitted responsibility and the case was resolved for a confidential amount.
