$1,000,000 Settlement – Medical Malpractice
While undergoing a minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (“TLIF”) surgery, our client’s SSEP neurological vitals dropped dramatically. Rather than removing the “cage”, which was designed and sold by the operating physician, or stopping surgery, he continued on. Following surgery, the 62-year-old registered nurse and mother of three grown children lost all feeling and use of her lower extremities and was diagnosed with foot drop. Her injuries have required extensive inpatient hospital treatment rehabilitation, pain management therapy and other medical treatment.
