A jury in Colorado Springs has awarded $15 Million for a emergency room misdiagnosis that left him paralyzed. The verdict is the largest in Colorado state history.
The actual payout to the plaintiff will be much lower than the $15 Million, as $10 Millions of the amount was pain and suffering. Colorado caps non-economic damages at $300,000. The plaintiff had also settled with the Memorial Hospital for their share before the verdict was rendered.
