Carol obtained a $5.9 million settlement for a 56-year-old patient in a rehabilitation center that prematurely discontinued her intravenous antibiotics, causing a six-week interruption in the treatment and worsening the osteomyelitis in her spine. She eventually became a paraplegic because of the damage to her spine from the infection.
