Medical Malpractice
Verdict for $20,000,000 in pain and suffering damages in medical malpractice case warranted remittitur
Verdict for $20,000,000 in pain and suffering damages in medical malpractice case warranted remittitur
- The jury in a medical malpractice action did not succumb to bias or prejudice in awarding damages for pain and suffering in the amount of $15,000,000 to a patient who contracted a mycobacterial infection during plastic surgery, and in the amount of $5,000,000 to the patient's husband. The awards, however, seemed improbable in light of the damages awarded in comparable cases, and were so great as to shock the conscience of the court. Thus, a remittitur of the awards to $10,000,000 for the patient and $1,000,000 for the husband was warranted. If the patient and her husband refused the remitted awards, a new trial on damages would be ordered.
