Large Award for Botched Anesthesia After Knee Surgery
Attorneys at Lane & Lane negotiated a $5 million mediated settlement on behalf of a woman who suffered a severe spinal cord injury due to botched anesthesia.
Our client had undergone an elective knee surgery. During and after the surgery, pain was supposed to be controlled by an epidural infusion of anesthetic agents. However, an excessive amount of anesthesia was used over a prolonged period, resulting in a toxic reaction and severe damage to the cauda equina, the lower portion of our client's spinal cord. This resulted in paralysis and significant pain.
