Our client originally went into surgery to have a non-malignant tumor removed from the face. During the procedure, a facial nerve was cut which caused partial facial paralysis to the patient. To improve the condition, the patient underwent a second surgery but unfortunately still suffers from partial facial paralysis.
The malpractice sut seeks damages for the personal injuries as well as reimbursement of the medical expenses for the follow up surgical care. No trial date has been set by the court.
