Obtained Jury Verdict of Over $2 Million for Undiagnosed Compartment Syndrome Leading to Permanent Nerve Damage

May 2017

Our team obtained a jury verdict of more than $2 million in St. Paul, Minnesota, for a young woman who developed compartment syndrome in the hospital that went undiagnosed and untreated after the placement of an intraosseous line in her leg. Because the compartment syndrome went untreated, the woman experienced permanent nerve damage leading to a permanent foot drop. The woman now has difficulty with mobility and is required to wear a foot brace to help her with walking.
