A 35-year-old woman underwent a successful surgery for removal of a brain aneurysm in 1991. Ten days later, she required a second surgery to stop bleeding in the area where the aneurysm was removed — after which she lost her sight for inexplicable reasons.
After a week-long-trial, just prior to summation, John Blume negotiated a settlement of $750,000.
