Jury Awards $3 Million in Medical Malpractice Lawsuit over Botched Surgery
Botched surgeries can be tough to deal with not only physically, but also emotionally and financially. Patients who are victims of such medical negligence in Pennsylvania may be faced with undergoing additional surgeries or medical procedures – which also means additional expenses and more pain and suffering.
A jury in Virginia reached its verdict in such a medical malpractice case, awarding $3 million to a woman who said that a doctor botched a gynecological surgery. Based on a www.nvdaily.com report, the lawsuit alleges that the victim suffered physical and mental problems as a result of this botched procedure. However, because of medical malpractice caps in Virginia, the woman may not be able to receive the $3 million awarded to her.
When states impose caps on damages in medical malpractice cases, this can be unfair to injury victims because the damages and injuries suffered by the victim may be worth a lot more than what the law allows them to claim. Medical malpractice in Pennsylvania is a complex area of personal injury law. Victims would be well-advised to seek the counsel of an experienced Harrisburg medical malpractice lawyer to get more information.
