Significant Verdicts and Settlements

Patient who suffered nerve damage from faulty surgical device receives $7.5 million settlement

A young professional, running to catch a train, tripped and fell down a flight of concrete steps. As part of the treatment for her rotator cuff injury, she underwent an arthroscopic procedure involving an electrothermal heating probe.

As Kolsby Gordon lawyers later proved, the device had been repeatedly connected with causing nerve damage. The manufacturer was aware of the conditions that led to the nerve damage, and presentations had been made at top conferences about how to prevent it. Yet neither her surgeon nor the manufacturer took the steps necessary to prevent the nerve damage from occurring to her shoulder during the procedure.

The resulting damage was chronic and debilitating—afterwards she required long-term help with even basic chores, as well as around-the-clock opiates for pain management. Because of the negligence of the doctor and the manufacturer, her career was finished. Kolsby Gordon helped our client secure a significant settlement that covers future medical and living expenses as she moves forward with her life.
