Have you ever been ripped off by an auto mechanic? Have you ever paid for a non-refundable product or service that truly didn’t live up to your expectations? Have you ever hired someone for help only to have the problem get worse rather than better?
A St. Louis man suffering from medical errors committed by a VA Medical Center was recently awarded $8.3 million by a federal judge. A father of three, the plaintiff is now paralyzed and mostly non-communicative. The award was split between the plaintiff ($6.8 million) and his primary caregiver wife ($1.5 million). In New Jersey or anywhere else, with a medical malpractice attorney, a plaintiff can recover damages from surgical errors committed by a medical provider who should know better.
