$489,500 Settlement: Defective Pain Pump Used in Shoulder Surgery

Nash & Franciskato obtained a $489,500 settlement for a 40-year old female hairstylist who underwent a shoulder repair surgery in which a pain pump was utilized post operatively. Research revealed that the pain pump caused a permanent condition known as chondrolysis, resulting in narrowing of the joint space and complete destruction of the cartilage in the shoulder joint. As a result of this damage, our client sustained permanent injuries that disabled her for the remainder of her life, precluding her to work and provide for her three children.
