On November 9, 2019, the attorneys of the Nebenzahl Law Group obtained a record $33,280,000.00 verdict on behalf of their client, who went to a cardiologist for evaluation of residual vegetation on a heart valve from pre-existing endocarditis. During the evaluation, the cardiologist became concerned about symptoms of rapid heart rate and an abnormal heart rhythm. He told the plaintiff that the plaintiff needed to be admitted to a hospital for IV medication to bring his rate down. The cardiologist told him that if the medication was not successful, he would need to undergo a trans-esophageal echocardiogram (TEE) followed by a cardioversion, both of which would be done under anesthesia.
Although the plaintiff’s heart rate was reduced and stable by the following morning when the cardiologist visited him in the hospital, the cardiologist advised the patient he needed the TEE and cardioversion and scheduled the procedure for a few hours later. No other treatment options were discussed or provided.
Within minutes of being anesthetized, the plaintiff stopped breathing for a period of time and sustained an anoxic brain injury. This resulted in severe myoclonus, a neuromuscular condition manifested by disabling tremors.
The plaintiff alleged that the cardiologist was negligent and failed to advise the patient of his treatment options and any associated risks. After five days of deliberation, the jury was unable to reach a verdict on the negligence claim, but found that the cardiologist was liable for failing to obtain informed consent for the procedure by failing to advise the plaintiff of alternative courses of treatment.
2011 - $900,000.00 on behalf of the victim of medical malpractice for failing to diagnose tongue cancer.
The plaintiff sought treatment with the defendant doctor for a non-healing mouth sore that waxed and waned for approximately eight years. The defendant doctor treated this condition for the entire eight years with topical creams – without ordering a biopsy. After eight years, the plaintiff was finally diagnosed with Stage Three invasive squamous cell carcinoma. As a result of the delay in diagnosis, he required extensive treatment to save his life. This treatment included radial neck dissection, floor of mouth resection and a reconstruction of his tongue, radiation therapy and chemotherapy treatments. As a result, he has sustained the loss of his salivary glands and other substantial permanent impairments due to this condition.
2007 - $750,000.00 recovery in wrongful death case resulting from laparoscopic gall bladder surgery.
The patient was a thirty-three year-old man, who consulted a surgeon for abdominal pains. The surgeon recommended that his gall bladder be removed via a laparoscopic surgical procedure. During the surgery, the patient’s duodenum was punctured. After he was discharged from the hospital, bile leaked into his abdominal area causing septic infection and shock. He died the following morning.
2007 - $150,000.00 settlement after surgeon performs a needless excision of a hematoma and causes damage to a quadriceps muscle and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve.
A forty-one year-old woman sustained a bruise or hematoma on her right thigh following a fall from her bicycle. The hematoma persisted and her doctor recommended surgery to cut out or excise the bruise. During the surgery, the plaintiff’s quadriceps muscle was cut along with the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. The plaintiff alleged that surgery was not an appropriate treatment for the hematoma and should not have been recommended or performed by the surgeon. Additionally, plaintiff alleged that she was not informed of the risks of the surgery.
2006 - Confidential settlements after woman was secretly videotaped while engaging in sexual intercourse

While finishing his shift at a commercial laundry facility, a forty-seven year-old production supervisor was struck on the head by a hook and trolley from an overhead monorail system, sustaining a brain injury. His claims were that the monorail system was defective because of a failure of its safety system. His settlement was in addition to $280,441.00 he received from workers compensation benefits.
While in the course of his employment as a painter in an auto body shop, a twenty-eight-year-old painter sustained injury when air from the Blo-Gun tool he was using entered a scab on his left hand. This immediately caused massive swelling to his hand and arm resulting in Carpel Tunnel Syndrome and Ulnar Neuropathy in his left (dominant) elbow, forearm, wrist and fingers. The claim against the manufacturer of the Blo-Gun was that it marketed a defective product in that it did not include a small venting tip that would have prevented this injury. In addition to the settlement, the employee received $26,589.05 in worker’s compensation benefits.
