$2 Million Medical Malpractice Settlement

December 19, 2023

Marcus A. Washington, Esq. settled a medical malpractice case for $2 million to be paid to the estate of our client Tyrone Hanes.

Mr. Hanes suffered from a catastrophic automobile accident that left him with chronic pain and physical limitations. There was some promise for relief with a spinal fusion surgery routinely used to help correct the pain and damage from accidents like the one that he suffered.

After surgery Mr. Hanes was placed in a halo, a metal device that circles and attaches to the skull, designed to keep bones in your neck from moving. The halo was improperly fitted and ended up cutting off his airway, resulting in his wrongful death. While the family still grieves the unexpected loss of Tyrone, they saw justice in this complex medical malpractice case.
