Reza Rezvani and Cassandra Rohme settled a medical malpractice action for $1,285,000 during jury selection.  The defendant physician performed a cervical epidural injection on our client. Epidural steroid injections allow doctors to inject medicine directly into the spinal canal around the fluid-filled space surrounding the nerve roots and spinal cord.  While the defendant was inserting the needle into our client, however, he went too far into the spinal canal and hit the nerve with needle.  The trauma to the nerve caused our client to suffer from a condition called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD).  CRPS/RSD caused our client to suffer continuous burning and throbbing pain in her arm; extreme sensitivity to touch and cold; and changes in skin color, ranging from white and mottled to red or blue.  

 The defendants position was that the needle did not come into contact with the nerve and that the CRPS was caused by a car accident that happened before the injection.  The case was litigated for over three years and the defendant never made any offer to settle the case.  Reza and Cassie prepared for trial and after one day of jury selection they secured a substantial settlement.

 If you or someone you know has been the victim of medical malpractice or suffers from CRPS/RSD as a result of an accident, you should contact an attorney who has experience in these types of claims.  The attorneys at Faruqi & Faruqi have a track record of success representing clients who have CRPS/RSD and have been harmed as a result of medical malpractice.
