$225,000 SETTLEMENT FOR GLOUCESTER MAN INJURED IN TRUCK CRASH

In February 2021 Virginia car accident attorney Ed Atkinson concluded a $225,000 settlement for a Gloucester youth injured in a serious motor vehicle accident.  When the pickup truck in which he was a passenger took a turn too fast it left the roadway and struck a guardrail and a trial.  The young man fractured his femur and had to be lifted by air ambulance to a Newport News hospital for immediate surgery.  His surgical team inserted a steel rod into the femur.  With extensive physical therapy the youth has returned to his normal activities and career training.

Virginia Hospital Settles Child’s Medical Malpractice Claim for $1.8 million

Carillon Clinic in Roanoke, Virginia settled a medical malpractice claim with parents of a young child who suffered a brain injury during surgery.  The child, Michelle Zhang, was hospitalized at Carillon Roanoke Memorial Hospital in September 2012 for pneumonia and other respiratory conditions.  Michelle was just 21 months old at the time.  A lawsuit filed on her behalf alleged that the anesthesiologist should have terminated the single lung ventilation procedure when the toddler’s oxygen levels began to rapidly drop.  This lead to a cardiac arrest that in turn caused brain injury.
