Catastrophic Med-Mal Paralysis Case Handled by Attorney Breen & DK Global
Attorney Sean Breen of Howry, Breen & Herman, LLP in Austin, Texas recently teamed up with DK Global for a high-stakes catastrophic medical malpractice case. Due to a hospital group’s negligence and extreme delay in diagnosis and action, a patient was left paralyzed for life.
Details of the Spine Injury Misdiagnosis Case
Our client, a middle-aged man, was left paralyzed due to egregious negligence in the hospital. About one month after he was rendered paralyzed, our client’s wife was the one who reached out to our firm to discuss what had happened. The short version of the medical malpractice is that the first hospital our client saw refused to transfer him out of their system for specialized care that could quickly address a growing lesion in his spine. Instead, they let him sit for five days as his condition worsened to the point of paralysis before finally conducting emergency spinal cord surgery.
In understanding the extremely high damages owed to the client, Texas’s troublesome noneconomic damage cap on medical malpractice cases, and the hospital’s unbelievable extent of negligence throughout the client’s care, Sean knew he needed professional “backup” to work on this case, which is why he called DK Global shortly after agreeing to represent the client. He teamed up with liability and damage experts to quickly and assuredly convince the defendant’s risk manager just how much harm had been done in both terms of the client’s finances and their overall happiness.
To bring all of this information into an easily digestible format, Sean worked with DK Global. The company is known far and wide for creating charts, illustrations, and animations that carefully and clearly explain medical facts and data that pertain to medical malpractice cases in particular. Not only did the DK Global graphics explain the seriousness of the client’s condition, but also the gross negligence of the hospital that failed to treat him for days and days.
Our entire team is excited to report that Attorney Breen’s collaboration with DK Global enabled this catastrophic medical malpractice claim to end with resounding success. Although the case was riddled with complications and possible setbacks, he was able to close it with a healthy settlement only six months after the client first spoke to him. Reaching such an amazing case result in such a short amount of time is practically unheard of. Thank you, DK Global, for all you did for our legal team and our client!
