Case Results

Ross v. Lee, MD (Ottawa, IL)

Verdict: $837,000

Offer: $0

The plaintiff, age 61, who was a part-time artist, underwent endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS procedure) for chronic maxillary sinus infections and headaches. During surgery, the defendant ENT surgeon penetrated the orbit bone of the right eye above the maxillary sinus causing double vision. The plaintiff's attorney Kurt Lloyd alleged that because orbital penetration is a recognized complication, the surgeon should have ordered a post-operative CT-Scan which would have discovered the orbital bleeding and then steroid treatment would have prevented the scarring to the eye muscles and resulting double vision. No medical expense damages were presented.
