A woman woke up from a spinal fusion surgery in excruciating pain due to the doctor improperly inserting a screw in her L4 nerve root. She underwent an additional surgery to remove the screw, but no supports were put in place for stability. This resulted in a right foot drop and severe pain. The defendant denied liability, despite having performed the surgery that gave rise to her injuries. This is when Bradley Schulman and David Gallagher from Motherway & Napleton, LLP came to High Impact to create a presentation with medical illustrations and a timeline to prove that her injuries were directly caused by the surgeries the doctor performed. Leveraging those visual aids, they were able to secure a $3.8M verdict.
