Firm Holds Hospital Responsible for Unnecessary Partial Hand Amputation
Jury Verdict: $40 Million
A woman who went into a hospital for lung surgery and ended up having her hand amputated was awarded $40 million in damages against the hospital responsible. She had had an operation on her lung to remove an abscess. In the recovery room, an intravenous tube feeding blood to a vein in her left hand dislodged and instead began pumping blood into her hand tissue, which became gangrenous. Her attorney also argued that the doctors had also provided the plaintiff with the wrong medication, which constricted her blood vessels and compounded the problem.
