Woman wins botched lung surgery suit

Sandusky Register Staff • Nov 23, 2013 at 3:00 PM

Attorneys from the firm represented the woman in Lucas County Common Pleas Court, suing her surgeon for negligently operating and removing the woman’s entire right lung.

The surgeon was supposed to remove only a small portion of tissue, but cut too deep. Instead of correcting the mistake, the surgeon removed the entire lung, leaving the Murray client constantly short of breath and unable to return to work as a phlebotomist.

The jury unanimously determined the doctor was negligent and awarded the $450,000 to remedy physical, emotional and economic damages.

The woman was represented by attorneys Charles M. Murray and James L. Murray.
