$2,500,000 Verdict (reduced to the statutory cap of $2,300,000)

An orthopedic surgeon inadvertently sutured a patient’s common peroneal nerve during an ACL repair and meniscectomy.  The nerve injury caused the patient to develop a foot drop and she incurred approximately $100,000 in past and future medical expenses.  After obtaining a default judgment for our client, we tried the damages case to a jury.  The jury returned a verdict of $2,500,000.
