Represented two young women and one young man in a proposed med-malpractice case. The young women were 14 and 18 at the time they had minor shoulder surgeries. They were both gifted competitive swimmers, who needed relatively routine surgeries on their shoulders. One was set to swim in college. The young man was then an aspiring dental student, now about to graduate as a dentist and move on to orthodontics school. Following the surgeries, a pain pump was used, which had the horrific effect of disintegrating their shoulder cartilage, leaving all three permanently injured. Parr Brown quickly and wisely moved the cases from a medical malpractice track to a product liability track (turning doctors from foes to allies).
Despite insurance limits and other challenges, they were able to settle the three cases for significant sums (which are confidential), representing a substantial percentage of available insurance money for all of these cases across the country.
