Will Bond and Neil Chamberlin, McMath Woods partners, recently represented a 76 year old gentleman against a Northwest Arkansas hospital. The client had developed a Stage IV pressure ulcer (commonly referred to as a bedsore) on his coccyx during his hospital stay. The hospital denied any negligence. The case was tried to a jury in Fayetteville, Washington County, Arkansas in May of 2014. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the client for 1.5 million dollars. The hospital has filed a notice of appeal. The pressure ulcer had caused the client significant damages including forcing him to have a colostomy and a procedure to cover the wound on his coccyx commonly referred to as “flap” surgery.
