Jay Cohen and Rudy Ayala obtained a verdict of $19.25 million* for their client, a 43-year-old Hollywood woman who suffered damages due to negligent delay in treatment. A Broward jury determined that three of her doctors failed to timely identify and treat her spinal epidural abscess, causing permanent nerve damage which left the Plaintiff paralyzed from the waist down. As of May, 2014, this is thought to be the largest jury award in South Florida this year. Additional details about the case were reported in the Daily Business Review on May 29, 2014.
