Victim of medical malpractice awarded $22 million

People in New York City and elsewhere expect that their physician's will provide them with appropriate treatment. But what if your doctor ordered a procedure that later left you paralyzed? That's what happened to one woman.

A medical foundation has been found guilty of medical malpractice and ordered to pay $22 million after an unnecessary procedure left a woman paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair.

The woman originally sought treatment in 2006 for migraine headaches. Doctors ordered an angiogram to get a better look at what appeared to be an abnormal vein in the woman's brain. However, when the woman was injected with a blue dye during the procedure she suffered a stroke and fell into a coma for two weeks. When she finally woke up she no longer had use of her arms and legs.

It was later determined that the angiogram was an unnecessary procedure and that the abnormal vein in the woman's head had nothing to do with her migraine headaches.

The woman now requires care 24 hours a day. She remains in a wheelchair and even has difficulty speaking. An attorney working on behalf of the woman said she will likely need care for the rest of her life, and the money she will be awarded can be used to pay for that care.

When patients are harmed because of a doctor's negligence, those doctors may face a medical malpractice lawsuit. Anyone who believes they are a victim of medical malpractice may wish to speak with an experienced attorney. An attorney can investigate a case and help victims of medical malpractice get the compensation they deserve.
