In this highly publicized case, the plaintiff filed a lawsuit for medical malpractice
stating she was unable to use her right arm after surgery. She also filed a complaint
against the doctor’s medical license.
The plaintiff was quoted in a newspaper article just weeks prior to our investigation
stating, “...she says she ended up with crippling pain in her right arm, shoulder
and chest. Not only can she no longer play tennis, she said, but she also can’t blow
dry her hair or ride on the passenger side of an automobile - the shoulder belt sears
her nerve endings.””
During our investigation, the subject demonstrated strength, mobility, dexterity
and full range of motion in her right arm. Based on the investigation, the complaint
to the State Medical Board was determined “unfounded”.
