Mark Collins obtained a $1.5 million medical malpractice verdict
against a trauma doctor for failing to properly treat a severely
broken leg. The doctor misaligned a broken femur and failed to surgically
correct the broken lower leg, resulting in repetitive operations.
The victim eventually needed a hip replacement and knee reconstruction,
all of which could have been avoided had the doctor given the appropriate
medical care. Mr. Collins was able to show that the doctor was not
qualified to cover trauma, had not kept current in his continuing
medical education, and was untrained in the use of the surgical
instruments used in the initial operation.
