$15M Colorado Medical Malpractice Award

$15M Colorado Medical Malpractice Award
August 2, 2012 tfirestine

A Colorado Springs jury has awarded $15M for a emergency room misdiagnosis that left him paralyzed. The verdict is the largest in Colorado history.

The actual payout will be much lower than the $15M, as 2/3 of the amount was pain and suffering. The state caps non-economic damages at $300,000. The plaintiff had also settled with the hospital for their share before the verdict was rendered.
