Minor Soccer Player Suffers Devastating Nose Injury, Undergoes Multiple Failed Surgeries, Pursues Medical Malpractice Claim and Receives $170,000 SettlementMedical Malpractice
In 2015, a minor went to a soccer game with their youth group at a local church. After the game, the participants gathered to enjoy group-facilitated games and activities. Our client, in course of the activity, was blindfolded and told to follow the voice of those around them. Unfortunately, our client collided with a steel pole causing significant injuries to their nose.
Unfortunately for our client, they underwent several surgeries to no avail. The operating doctors struggled to effectively set their nose and refused to conduct any sort of reconstructive surgery. Because of this, our client struggled to breath, could not participate in sports, and struggled with day-to-day activities. Finally, after years of struggling, our client received a full rhinoplasty. However, the rhinoplasty failed, and our clients nose caved in.
Through working with several medical professionals and advocating on behalf of our client, we pursued recovery for the failed surgery and botched medical practices. As a result, our client has been compensated for her suffering and is on the road to a successful recovery.
