2007 Medical Malpractice

CASE TYPE: Medical Malpractice


The case involved a 38 year old plumber who was injured in a motorcycle accident. Among other injuries, he sustained a massive left rotator cuff tear. He was taken to a nearby hospital and treated. An orthopedist was called in who failed to diagnose and treat the rotator cuff tear. By the time the plumber found another orthopedist who would treat him, it was too late to surgically repair it. As a result, he has much pain in his shoulder and very little movement of his left arm and was unable to return to his occupation.

            The case resulted in a seven figure settlement.
