Vlazny v. Cavarrocci MD et al: One of the largest medical malpractice verdict in Pennsylvania history. This case involved an adult heart surgeon who operated on a baby who required a relatively simple heart surgery. Dr. Cavarrocci was unfamiliar with the tiny anatomy of a very small, premature neonate, and his lack of knowledge caused the baby to suffer severe brain damage and amputation of his arm.
An amputation occurs when any body part is either wholly or partially lost as a result of an accident, assault, malpractice, negligence or product defect. Any amputation-whether of an arm, leg, foot, hand, finger, or toe-is a life-altering event that causes the injured victim serious pain and challenges, including having to relearn how to perform the basic tasks of life.
Any person who has suffered an amputation is faced with extensive physical therapy and occupational therapy just to carry out the basic tasks of everyday living. Not only does an amputation cause physical injuries, but it also causes emotional injuries, lost income or wages, expensive medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, as well as many other damages and hurdles.
