MEDICAL MALPRACTICE:
The firm obtained a jury verdict for their clients in a medical malpractice claim against a Columbia Orthopaedic Surgeon. The jury found that the surgeon performed an unnecessary carpal tunnel release surgery on plaintiff, and as a result, she suffered a painful and debilitating injury known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), or Regional Complex Pain Syndrome, significantly impairing the young mother’s ability to use her dominant right hand.
