Acupuncture Malpractice Trial Verdict $1,400,000
Verdict at trial of $1.4M for a 53 year-old man who suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns on his back when his acupuncturist failed to secure a heat lamp and then left the patient unattended in the treatment room. Through the use of medical expert testimony, trial attorney Jason Krantz proved to the jury that the three inch scar on the client's back was permanent and causes the plaintiff pain when he moves his body and sits on a chair. The general counsel for the defendant's insurer advised us that this verdict is the highest recorded verdict for an acupuncture malpractice case in the United States.
