$9,792,412 Awarded to Medical Malpractice Victim

SUMMARY OF CASE

Our client suffered an inter-operative stroke while undergoing surgery to remove a tumor from his brain. The case against the primary surgeon settled prior to trial for $1,950,000 out of an available $2,000,000 in insurance coverage. Partner S. Joseph Donahue then proceeded to trial against the assistant surgeon, obtaining a $9,792,412 verdict.
