Butch Borden and his wife have been awarded one of the largest medical malpractice jury verdicts in the history of Jefferson County, Alabama. After receiving negligent medical care that left Mr. Boren permanently incontinent and impotent, the couple has been awarded $7.5 million in injury damages.
Mr. Borden underwent lower back surgery in September of 2010. Shortly after, he began suffering from severe back and leg pain. His wife rushed him to the emergency room at the Brookwood Medical Center. After admitting him, the medical staff determined that Mr. Borden had a small blood clot near a bundle of nerves in his back. This clot caused Mr. Borden to develop incontinence. He later lost movement in his legs. According to witnesses who testified at trial, these symptoms signaled major neurological changes—changes that should have been immediately addressed by appropriate medical care. Instead, no nurse ever called Mr. Borden’s doctor to report the problems. When doctors were notified the next day, it was too late. The damage was permanent.
As a result of the permanent damages to the patient from his negligent medical care, the jury awarded Mr. Borden and his wife $7.5 million for his injuries.
