Despite the COVID-19 (also known as the novel coronavirus) pandemic surging throughout the United States, Schlesinger Law Offices, P.A. has obtained a $3.5 million jury verdict for our client who suffered complications from a metal-on-metal hip implant. This is a huge achievement for both our firm and patients wronged by negligence, as this victory shows that justice can be obtained even during a public health crisis.
According to our legal team, justice was long overdue for our client, Plaintiff Lori Nicholson, who underwent hip surgery in 2007, receiving an implant manufactured by Biomet Inc. She had a revision in 2012 after the implant became loose as a result of metal ion disease. Shortly thereafter, she developed a pseudocyst, elevated levels of chromium in her bloodstream, and pain.
“Traveling and trying a case in person during a pandemic is never ideal, but our client deserved justice and the very best representation in court,” Attorney Bryan Hofeld of Schlesinger Law Offices, P.A. told Yahoo Finance. “We took the necessary precautions and got our client the justice she deserved along with one of the largest verdicts in the country for 2020.”
Public health safety regulations were not ignored, however. In fact, COVID-19 prevention guidelines, such as wearing masks and maintaining a safe distance from others, were adhered to in the courtroom. Thus, our legal team was able to recover $1.05 million in compensatory damages and $2.5 million in punitive damages for Ms. Nicholson while staying safe.
