A man has been awarded $10 million in damages after suffering severe pain following a hospital procedure. Larry Schultz, the injured man and former nuclear pharmacist, was awarded $5 million alone for his pain and suffering during the ordeal. Schultz was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1988 and has been receiving treatments to help him cope with the physical problems associated with the disease. In 2006, he returned to St. Luke’s Medical Center to have a drug injected into his spine in order to relieve spasticity.
Two drugs were injected into his spine, Baclofen and Reno-60. Court documents later revealed that Reno-60 is not meant to be used as an intrathecal injection, meaning it is not meant to be injected into the spine.
This crucial mistake has caused serious injuries for Schultz, leading to severe spasticity, seizures, and neurological damage. Shultz was forced to use a wheelchair after suffering the injury.
Daniel Rottier of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® represented Schultz throughout his terrible experience and was able to assist him in receiving the compensation that he deserved for his injuries.
