Doctor Must Pay $1.2M in Malpractice Suit

After a two-day trial a Toledo doctor must pay $1.2M in a malpractice suit. A jury found Dr. Patrick White negligent in his care of Chad Wellman, who underwent hernia surgery in June 2003. During the procedure, Mr. Wellman’s small bowel was nicked but was not repaired at the time, causing him to have a septic reaction that included an extended hospital stay. As part of his treatment for the nicked bowel, Mr. Wellman incurred several hundred thousand dollars worth of medical bills.
