17-year-old girl wins $135M lawsuit in malpractice case

— A 17-year-old Wyandotte girl won $135 million in a medical malpractice lawsuit against Detroit Medical Center.

Faith DeGrand, who was 10 at the time, received improper medical treatment that left her with permanent weakness in her arms and legs and loss of bowel and bladder control, said her attorney, Geoffrey Fieger.

A jury returned the verdict Monday after a two-week trial in Wayne County Circuit Court.

Fieger said it was one of the largest medical malpractice awards in the country this year.

"The hero jury awarded appropriate damages for these horrific, life-destroying injuries," he said.

The Detroit Medical Center could not be reached for comment.

DeGrand had entered Detroit Medical Center in 2011 for surgery to correct a sideways curvature of her spine, said Fieger.

A doctor placed rods on her spine to relieve the compression of her spinal cord, said Fieger. Instead of providing relief, the devices affected her limbs and bowel and bladder.

If it can't be seen, and you really need it, then YES!

With the aging of the baby boomer generation will my idea of a soap opera, "The Old and the Rested" catch on?

In the very first episode, Victoria discovers that her tummy tuck surgeon has been secretly sending his Viagra prescription to the address of her arch rival Fanny Livft, while her husband has just lost his job becausing of an embarrasing bladder control

Did you see those other Soaps?, "One Face you GIve"; General Geriatrics Hostpital, All My Grand Children, and As The Hair Turns?

lol...but will Brad wear pink ........

No one would watch with a title like the old and the rested. Everyone, regardless of their actually age, does not consider themselves old. The only ones who will call themselves old are the people who are really really old, somewhere up beyond their
