Woman Sustains Further Injury from Car Crash after Negligent Doctor Performs Faulty Surgery; Settled for $130,000
A woman sustained a serious injury from a car crash, which was due in part to a medically negligent doctor installing faulty hardware during a procedure to correct cervical issues. The woman had a history of cervical pain, and underwent three procedures in a span of ten years to correct faulty hardware. Prior to the crash, it was confirmed that the woman had requested another procedure to correct a snapped screw, which was made worse by the crash.
Jeffrey A. Milman and Jason Caruso of Hodes Milman Liebeck represented the plaintiff, resulting in a $130,000 settlement.
