Denver Personal Injury Attorney
Frank specializes in handling complex medical malpractice cases. In 1994, Frank tried a case in Iowa and obtained a medical malpractice verdict of $8,600,000.00, which at the time, was the largest jury award in Iowa for a medical malpractice case. This complex case involved the failure of emergency room physicians to properly diagnose and treat a cervical fracture. As a result of the medical negligence of the doctors and nurses, our client was needlessly rendered a quadriplegic and will be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of her life. Frank has also handled numerous birth injury cases in which babies have needlessly suffered profound brain injury and other severe disabilities as a result of medical negligence which occurred during delivery. More recently, Frank and his partner, Bill Marlin, tried a medical malpractice case on behalf of a young girl who had been born premature. While she was in the neonatal intensive care unit, her healthcare providers failed to timely diagnose and treat a visible skin infection. Left untreated, the skin infection moved into the baby's blood and seeded in the bones of her ankle, where it caused a serious bone infection. As a result, the little girl had to have her foot and lower leg amputated and will be required to utilize prosthetics for the remainder of her life. Following a two week jury trial, Frank and Bill obtained a verdict of $2,772,350.00 on behalf of the little girl, which far exceeded the $250,000.00 offered by the medical malpractice insurance company prior to trial.
