A man won $17.5 million in a medical malpractice suit against a doctor who failed to treat him correctly after contracting MRSA. The plaintiff contracted the hospital borne infection after having ulcer surgery. Due to the doctor’s failure to treat his infection with proper antibiotics, the man lost both his arms and legs from the MRSA infection.
Due to state medical malpractice caps, the plaintiff only received $250,000.
