Patient Suffers From Pain and Leg Weakness Due to Improperly Placed Pedicle Screws

This client underwent surgery to alleviate chronic leg pain involving the placement of screws into the pedicles of client’s spine. After the procedure, neurophysical monitoring was done to ensure the pedicle screws were properly placed. However, due to a technician’s misreading of the monitoring data, it was determined that the screws were properly placed, when in fact they had not been. As a result, client’s condition was exacerbated, causing client to develop new pain and leg weakness. Rosen Louik & Perry represented the client and filed for pain and suffering damages. Defendant contended that all of client’s pain was caused by the underlying condition. This case settled for $250,000.00.
