Neurosurgeon Awarded $3 Million for Injury at Medical Center
The Scranton Times Tribune reports a neurosurgeon who suffered a broken leg when he was hit by a hospital bed being pushed down the hall, has been awarded $3.25 million in his personal injury lawsuit against Community Medical Center.
In February 2005, the doctor was in the operating room reviewing a patient’s chart when he was struck by the bed. The physician is a diabetic and the trauma he suffered from the broken leg led to an infection, and as a result, his right leg had to be amputated above the knee. The amputation made it impossible for him to continue to perform surgery.
The doctor claimed the trauma from the bed hitting his leg was directly responsible for the infection and subsequent amputation.
