A man working as a maintenance technician injured his non-dominant hand, and underwent an open reduction and internal fixation of the fracture performed by the defendant, an orthopedic surgeon. Several months later, he underwent a second operation after re-injuring his hand. The plaintiff later changed his insurance and underwent another surgery on his hand from a different surgeon, during which the surgeon performed a left radial nerve decompression because the radial nerve had been negligently compressed beneath a plate. This negligent nerve plating meant that the plaintiff would need further surgery in the future, and would not be able to pursue a career as a heavy equipment mechanic. Represented by Jeffrey A. Milman of Hodes Milman, LLP, mediation resulted in a $400,000 settlement, with a portion to be paid via an annuity.
