3/10/2016 - Markman & Cannan take $1,498,000 verdict in Essex County
March 10, 2016 in Essex County our firm took a verdict in the amount of $1,448,000 against a defendant Doctor in a medical malpractice case.
Facts: Our client slipped and fell at a supermarket injuring her ankle/foot among other body parts. She came under the care of her PCP and eventually was referred to an orthopedic surgeon, by a chiropractor, for treatment of her injuries. No X-Rays were ordered by the orthopedic surgeon and 10 months later, after our client's foot collapsed, he ordered an MRI, and then he performed a fusion surgery to her foot and ankle. We alleged that the supermarket was negligent for the injuries, and we initiated a lawsuit in Essex County. The surgery performed by the orthopedic surgeon was unsuccessful and our client required an additional 4 surgeries to correct the deficiencies. We amended our complaint to name the orthopedic surgeon as a defendant, as we believed he deviated from the standard of care, resulting in further damages to our client. The Friday before trial, we settled with the supermarket for $225,000.00, and proceeded to trial against the defendant orthopedic surgeon. After a two week trial the jury delivered a verdict in favor of our client for $1,448,000.00.
