Defense Verdict for Neurosurgeon in Montgomery County

Heather Hansen obtained a defense verdict for a neurosurgeon in Montgomery County. The plaintiff alleged that the neurosurgeon negligently performed a complete laminectomy with foraminotomy procedure on her, thereby injuring her spinal cord. Although the plaintiff awoke from surgery with a Brown-Sequard Syndrome, the defense contended that the operation was performed appropriately and that there was no evidence in the medical records to suggest that the neurosurgeon caused the plaintiff's injuries. The defense also noted that the plaintiff's medical expert had not ruled out all other possible causes of the plaintiff's injury, such as spinal stroke. After deliberating for less than an hour, the jury returned a verdict in the defendant's favor.
