  • Hospital and Neurosurgeons Send Patient Home Despite Clear MRI; Rendered Quadriplegic

    Nason v. Hospital of Central Connecticut et al. (Hartford Superior Court filed November 6, 2014) A middle-aged woman with a remote history of cervical spine surgery visited the ER at the Hospital of Central Connecticut multiple times complaining of severe and worsening neck and arm pain.  Despite an MRI revealing what the radiologist warned an epidural abscess pressing on her spinal cord, nothing was done by the hospital or two separate defendant neurosurgeons.  Seventeen days after her last visit, the vertebrae at the base of her neck collapsed due to the severe infection and she was immediately rendered quadriplegic.

  • Defective Hip Replacement that Ortho Fails to Inform

    Carpanzano v. Stryker Corp. and Hughes et al. (Bridgeport Superior Court—filed October 17, 2014) Product liability and medical malpractice case involving a woman who has a total hip replacement with an implant that is subsequently recalled from the market.  Despite her orthopedic surgeon’s knowledge of the recall, he never informed his patient.  Our client suffered two years of severe and debilitating hip pain and developed a large soft tissue tumor near the implant as a result of the metal particles emanating from the defective implant.  It was not until she sought a second opinion that she was informed the hip MORE

    Dell v. Walaliyadda et al. (New Haven Superior Court—filed September 25, 2014) Our client was a middle-aged man with several cardiac risk factors. He consulted his primary care physician on two separate occasions; first complaining of exertional chest pressure, comparing it to “someone sitting on [his] chest.” Next, complaining of “three weeks of indigestion that radiated to [his] jaw and upper left arm.”  No work-up for angina or heart disease was done by his GP in either case and 3 days after the second visit, our client tragically suffered a massive heart attack and cardiac arrest due to his undiagnosed MORE

  • In Re: DePuy Pinnacle Hips, Multiple Cases Filed in Federal Court

    Johnson & Johnson designed and sold DePuy Pinnacle hip replacements that leave toxic amounts of chromium in the blood supply. These replacements are metal on metal and have also been implicated in poor functionality, increased failure rate, metallosis, infection, dislocation and immobility. These parts must be removed. Thousands of these implants were used on patients throughout the country, and Faxon Law Group is prosecuting these cases as part of a Multi-District Litigation centered in Texas. These cases must be brought within three years of the discovery of a defect so time is of the essence!

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
