$11.4 Million | Cervical Fusion Revision – Defective Pin Tip Device

$11.4 Million for the surviving family of a man who died as a result of injuries sustained during a cervical fusion revision at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. He was rendered a ventilator-dependent quadriplegic for 2 years and subsequently died from his injuries. The healthcare defendants claimed a pin tip on the head-holder device had fractured, causing the catastrophe. The hospital threw away the pin tips, then sued the product defendants. Both the plaintiffs and the product defendants had spoliation claims against the healthcare defendants.
