Medical Malpractice: Roland v. Bernstein, M.D. ($2,323,550 Verdict)
We represented Patti Roland against a neurosurgeon, hospital, and anesthesiologist regarding her injuries sustained during and after a low back disk removal surgery. The surgeon, anesthesiologist, and nurses failed to diagnose and treat the injuries and shock suffered by Patti after the surgeon had a pituitary rongeur slip during surgery, injuring one of her main blood vessels. The anesthesiologist and hospital settled for $1,400,000 before trial. The surgeon refused to offer a fair settlement. We tried the case, and Patti received a $923,550 verdict against him, bringing her total recovery to $2,323,550.
