NEWS RELEASE Murray & Murray Obtains $450,000 Judgment on Behalf of Victim of Negligent Lung Surgery

November 25, 2013

(SANDUSKY, Ohio) - Murray & Murray Co., L.P.A., recently obtained a $450,000.00 judgment after a week-long jury trial in the Lucas County Court of Common Pleas on behalf of a 61-year-old woman who suffered permanent disability caused by her surgeon negligently operating and then removing her entire right lung.  The surgery was intended to remove a small portion of tissue from one of three lobes of the patient’s right lung.  However, the surgeon cut too deep; and thereafter, rather than remove the targeted tissue and repair what was inadvertently cut, removed the patient’s entire right lung.  As a result, she is constantly short of breath and unable to return to work in her long-term career position as a phlebotomist.   

The jury determined unanimously that the physician was negligent and awarded the $450,000 judgment to help remedy the physical, emotional, and economic damages.  Murray & Murray partner, Charles M. Murray, represented the injured patient in the case and was assisted at trial by fellow partner, James L. Murray.
