$750,000 Settlement for Medical Malpractice Victim
Sullivan & Brill, LLP and co-counsel recently obtained a $750,000 settlement on behalf of a client whose radial nerve had been severed by a surgeon attempting to remove two tumors in her right arm. The client presented to the surgeon with neurofibromatosis, a condition that causes tumors to grow on nerve tissue. The doctor that committed the medical malpractice evaluted the client and assured her that the small tumor could be removed without any damage to the radial nerve. However, prior to the surgery, he did not perform the proper tests to ensure that the tumor could be safely removed without damaging the radial nerve, and during the surgery, he severed it, leaving the client with a significant loss of use of her right hand.
