Description:Claimant was a 19 year-old involved in a motorcycle accident on March 29, 2003 when he was struck and then partially run over by a truck. While treating for these injuries, Mr. O was given excessive amounts of sedatives, narcotic pain relievers and anesthesia by his treating physicians which caused him to go into shock and led to permanent brain damage. The insurer for the truck driver tendered its $1 million policy. The medical providers have also paid over $3 million in settlements with an additional $2 million claims bill pending with the Florida Legislature. The funds recovered have allowed Mr. O to obtain the care he needs for the rest of his life and for his mother to devote herself exclusively to his care.
