Medical malpractice lawsuit settled for nearly $1 million

Surgeons and physicians are commonly considered some of the most intelligent members of society. Although it takes years of schooling and constant training to be a doctor in the state of Kentucky, it is a fact that all humans will make mistakes. Mistakes made during medical procedures can completely change the lives of patients and families, and not for the better. A medical malpractice claim was filed against a surgeon in another state after alleged negligence during a procedure left a man with injuries.

The plaintiff in the lawsuit is a veteran of the U.S. Navy. According to the lawsuit, the man underwent a surgical procedure to remedy a blocked artery in his leg. However, the plaintiff alleged that he was used as a guinea pig for the surgeon and suffered debilitating injuries as a result of a botched procedure.

The lawsuit said the man suffered leg weakness, severe pain and the need for follow-up procedures to repair the damage. Allegedly, the surgeon who performed the surgery had been accused of incompetence and disruptive behavior in the state where he had previously practiced. The plaintiff claimed to have no prior knowledge of this before his procedure. The lawsuit was recently settled for $950,000.

Unfortunately, negligent medical procedures happen everyday in the United States, far more often than most people realize. Those in Kentucky who have suffered injuries or loss due to medical malpractice could greatly benefit from seeking the services of a knowledgeable attorney. A monetary award from a successful lawsuit could help victims and families cope with the financial hardships that typically come with such a tragic experience.
