$6.4 Million Verdict for Faulty Injection Causing Permanent Paralysis

Gentry Locke Rakes & Moore for the Plaintiff.

Fredericksburg City Circuit Court

Our client, a 49-year-old man, presented at a hospital to receive an epidural steroid injection to his lower back, to be performed using CT fluoroscopic guidance. Approximately sixty seconds after the injection of Kenalog, the Plaintiff began to experience paralysis. Evidence revealed that the Defendant had injected the steroid into an artery, causing a stroke in the Plaintiff’s spinal cord leading to permanent paralysis. After a four-day jury trial, the jury returned after 2.5 hours of deliberations with a $6.4 million verdict for the Plaintiff.

Status of the case:

Jury verdict for our client in the amount of $6.4 million.
