Trent Hughes and wife, Lisa, won a $16.5 million dollar verdict in a California court against neurosurgeon, Dr. Christopher Pham.    

Medical records indicated that Mr. Hughes received a spinal cord injury November 2, 2003, while off-roading and was flown to Riverside County Medical Center. Mr Hughes sustained a spinal fracture with compression unrelieved by surgery from Dr. Pham until two days following the initial injury.

The allegations in this lawsuit were that by the time Dr. Pham performed the surgery, it was too late and that the damage to Mr. Hugh’s spinal cord had become irreversible.

The Plaintiffs received compensation for the loss of consortium, lost income, medical expenses (past and future), pain and suffering and rehabilitative costs.
