Award Against Manassas Surgeon
A June case involved a botched hernia repair done by a Manassas surgeon. His negligence caused a severe nerve injury to a 44-year-old man. The injury caused chronic and permanent pain to his abdomen, groin and scrotum. Despite the fact that we retained good expert witnesses to explain to the jury how this tragedy could have been prevented, the insurance company made no offer whatsoever. This case went to trial in the Federal Court in Alexandria Virginia. After the jury deliberated over 11 hours, they returned a verdict in the amount of $750,000.
Each case is different and the fact that significant damages were awarded in these cases is not a representation that similar results can be achieved in other cases.
