Spinal Injection Leads to Personal Injury and $10 Million in Compensation

Posted under Uncategorized

A Mosinee man has been awarded $10 million in damages after suffering a great deal of pain following a hospital procedure. Larry Schultz, the injured man and former nuclear pharmacist, was awarded $5 million for his pain and suffering alone. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1988 and has been receiving treatments for it ever since. In 2006, he returned to St. Luke’s Medical Center to have a drug injected into his spine in order to relieve spasticity caused by the disease.

Two drugs were injected that day, Baclofen and Reno-60, however, court documents revealed that Reno-60 is not meant to be used as an intrathecal injection, meaning it is not meant to be injected into the spine.

This crucial mistake lead to serious injuries for Schultz, leading to severe spasticity, seizures, and neurological damage. Shultz was forced to use a wheelchair as a result of the painful injuries.

Daniel Rottier of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® represented the man throughout his terrible ordeal and was able to assist him in receiving the compensation that he deserves for his injuries.
