A California medical malpractice lawsuit has ended in a $22 million verdict.
A Menlo Park woman was confined to a wheelchair after an invasive procedure regarding chronic migraines left her in a coma for almost two weeks. The woman had been going to the California clinic to receive non-invasive treatment for her severe migraines for years. On a particular visit in 2006, the doctors decided to conduct a cerebral angiogram on the woman.
The woman was not informed of the risks associated with the angiogram. As a result of the procedure, the woman fell into a coma. She was paralyzed in more than half of her body after waking up from the coma. She now requires constant medical attention. The jury decided that the clinic was negligent in it’s care of the woman, and awarded her $22 million in damages.
