A Rhode Island man recently won a $2 million medical malpractice lawsuit for his claim that he suffered brain damage due to a lack of proper care during open heart surgery at a Rhode Island hospital. During the 1998 operation, the plaintiff claims he suffered from low amounts of oxygen to his brain, causing permanent damage. The man lost memories of his children, became unable to properly form new memories, and experienced communication disabilities.
After interest is calculated, the settlement amount is about $3.6 million. The lawyer representing the sued hospital and doctor claims the plaintiff received excellent medical care. The attorney plans to file a motion for a new trial, and if that fails, an appeal with the Supreme Court.
