$3,000,000 Medical Malpractice Settlement

On the first day of trial, defendants agreed to settle a medical malpractice case venued in Camden County New Jersey for over $3 million. The plaintiff was set to prove that an important pre surgery lab test was ignored by the surgeon, and that the postoperative nurse responsible for caring for the patient after surgery failed to identify classic signs and symptoms of a post-operative spinal hematoma, resulting in partial paralysis.
