Peter Fisher: eighth cyclist to die on London's roads in 2018

The Personal Injury team is horrified to read of another cycling death in London this week and our sincere condolences go to the family of Peter Fisher. Dr Fisher was hit and killed by a lorry while cycling in High Holborn and, according to the Evening Standard, this is the eighth cyclist killed in London already this year, five of which have involved lorries.

Both will need long-term rehabilitation to deal with their terrible injuries and their lives will never be the same.

Harriet Cook, 83, suffered from a degenerative spinal condition in her neck. A pain management specialist, Dr. Michael Rubeis, did a fluoroscopic cervical epidural injection to help with Cook’s pain symptoms. During the procedure, Cook complained of pain. Nevertheless, Dr. Rubeis continued. Afterwards, Cook discovered that her arms and legs were paralyzed. Her left arm remained paralyzed, which prevented her from living independently as she did before the procedure. Before she passed away, Cook sued Dr. Rubeis’ group, alleging negligent performance of the epidural injection. Cook claimed that Dr. Rubeis chose not to ascertain the location of the needle, leading him to inject steroid solution directly into Cook’s spinal cord, breaching the dura and causing nerve damage. The jury returned a verdict of $3.5 million. However, the parties settled for an undisclosed amount. Continue reading The post $3.5 Million Jury Verdict for Patient’s Paralysis After…..
