Equipment Misuse

Duffy & Duffy secured a $1.7 million verdict on behalf of a plaintiff that suffered a debilitating stroke when the surgeon negligently severed an artery during surgery to remove a tumor.

Duffy & Duffy proved that the surgeon failed to properly utilize the appropriate surgical equipment when performing the surgery, so he was unable to see the artery which was buried in the tumor. As a result, the plaintiff was confined to a nursing home, in need of constant care and assistance.
