$5,000,000 Settlement for Mistreated Back Injury

Marta wrenched her back and went to two different Philadelphia-area emergency rooms with complaints of severe pain and numbness down both legs, as well as urologic dysfunction. She was suffering from an emergency neurological condition known as cauda equina syndrome, which required immediate surgery. This condition went undiagnosed by the physicians at two hospitals, and as a result Marta suffers from permanent neurological dysfunction. Stephen Raynes secured a global settlement in excess of $5 million from the medical providers and from the homeowner’s policy of Marta’s mother (at whose house Marta initially injured herself).
