Median Nerve Damaged During Carpal Tunnel Surgery-Settlement
The attorneys of Berger & Lagnese filed a medical malpractice case in Pittsburgh, PA against a surgeon for damaging our client's median nerve during a carpal tunnel surgery. We submitted expert testimony that the operative technique used by the neurosurgeon was outdated and had been universally condemned by hand surgeons. Ultimately the defendant agreed to pay a monetary settlement to compensate our client for her injuries.
