A federal appeals court has ordered Campbell County Memorial Hospital to pay a Nevada woman $2 million for damages she suffered when a doctor there failed to diagnose that her husband had broken his neck in a vehicle accident.
A jury in Cheyenne handed down the largest medical malpractice verdict in Wyoming history. The case centered on Louis Prager, who was rushed to the emergency room after an auto accident in 2008. The doctor, Brian Cullison, failed to diagnose his broken neck. As a result, Prager’s left shoulder remains paralyzed; he’s unable to work; and he’s in constant pain.
