Firm Wins Compensation for Amputee
A 45-year-old man lost his leg and was confined to hospital and his bed for a month due to medical negligence was awarded $1 million in compensation. The hospital and doctors responsible for his treatment failed to perform a proper medical exam and as a result did not correctly identify Plaintiff’s symptoms, meaning that he was not diagnosed with or treated for his blood flow defects or ischemia. Their negligence caused severe and prolonged edema and ischemia, the need for emergency explorative surgery, the development of metabolic abnormalities, gangrene and amputation of the right leg and psychiatric trauma.
When a jury rules like this in a sexual harrasment case, they know that it was international, and they also know that the reason this manager was able to get away with this was that the company had to be looking the other way."
