MediVisuals' Missouri Client Testimonial

"...MediVisuals created some displays for me [from my client's] brain MRIs. I ordered these last minute (5 days before trial). I am glad I did, as they really brought home our client's injury. I am pleased to report that we received an 8 million dollar verdict in rural Platte County, Missouri for a 5-year-old girl who suffered a brain injury from a seat collapse.
Thanks again to your team!"

$3,300,000 Settlement - Failure to Promptly Diagnose and Properly Treat Spinal Cord Compression

 
Congratulations to Brian Meyers, Esq. of The Law Offices of Brian Timothy Meyers in Kansas City, Missouri for the award he obtained on behalf of a woman who was left a paraplegic due to a failure to promptly diagnose and properly treat a thoracic spinal cord compression.

The plaintiff was admitted to the ER at 8:50 AM presenting with sharp pains in her upper back coupled with numbness and an inability to move her lower extremities. Defendant physicians ordered a lumbar MRI at 10:15 AM despite the fact that her symptoms were consistent with a thoracic spine injury. She was not seen by a neurosurgeon until approximately eleven hours after first arriving at the hospital and did not receive a thoracic MRI until four hours after seeing the neurosurgeon. 

The eventual thoracic MRI showed a large T9 disc herniation compressing the spinal cord.  Surgical decompression was not performed until 2:00 AM that night and was performed at the wrong level. A follow-up MRI showed the compression to be worse than the previous day and another decompression procedure was performed, this time at the proper level.  The second decompression procedure resulted in a dural tear and cerebrospinal fluid leak. 

Mr. Meyers argued that the delay in diagnosis and treatment resulted in permanent paraplegia that would have otherwise been avoided. Mr. Meyers also utilized several exhibits, including the ones shown below, to demonstrate these errors as well as the plaintiff's injuries and surgical procedures.

$8,000,000.00 Verdict - Child Suffers Traumatic Brain Injuries from Seatback Failure


Congratulations to Robert Langdon, Esq., Adam Graves, Esq., and Phyllis Norman, Esq. of Langdon & Emison in Lexington, Missouri for the verdict they obtained on behalf of a child who was injured when a seatback failed during a motor vehicle collision.

The case involved a 5-year-old girl who was properly restrained in her car seat behind her grandmother. The vehicle was rear ended while sitting at a red light. During the collision, the grandmother's seatback failed and collapsed backwards, causing her head to be propelled into the girl’s head. As a result, the girl suffered multiple skull fractures and a massive injury to the left frontal lobe of her brain.

The plaintiff now suffers from permanent partial paralysis to the right side of her body as well as an injury to a left eye nerve, which prevents that eye from tracking in concert with her right eye. Her most significant injury however, is the permanent damage to the left frontal lobe of her brain, which controls her higher learning, speech and thought process. The girl's treating physician testified that the she will not progress cognitively much beyond that of an adolescent, will never function as an independent adult, and will require assistance for the rest of her life.

Plaintiff’s expert testified that the grandmother's seat was defective in design because the design allowed a twisting of the seat back in a rear-end collision. Consequently, this twisting would allow the plates of the recliner to separate and cause the seat to collapse backwards into a rear seat occupant. He also testified that a simple and inexpensive design alteration to include dual recliners would have prevented the seat failure.

The seat designer and manufacturer (defendant) agreed that their own pre-production testing showed that the seat would fail just as it did in this collision. Surprisingly, the defendant's Corporate Representative and seat expert testified that he had no opinion on whether the seat was defective and that he does not design seats with rear occupants in mind.

Following the week and a half trial and 6 hours of deliberation, the Platte County jury returned a verdict of $8 million in favor of the plaintiff.  This is believed to be the largest verdict against the defendant for a seatback failure case.

MediVisuals was entrusted to develop several exhibits, including the ones shown below, to demonstrate the plaintiff's injuries.
