Skinkis v. Defendant Hospital
Dismissal with Prejudice (Case Settled By Other Defendants)
Plaintiff, a 52 year old factory worker, sustained a work injury to his leg that progressed to formation of a diabetic ulcer. A workup revealed severe peripheral vascular disease.
Plaintiff alleged that a delay in revascularizing his leg led to gangrene, resulting in below the knee amputation.
The case settled on the third day of trial for $3 million, but the firm’s client, the employer of the vascular surgeon defendant, paid nothing toward the settlement.
