$17.5M for ex-Marine for stroke after VA surgery

Christopher Ellison a 53 year-old ex-Marine has been awarded $17.5 million because of a stroke he suffered following dental surgery at a Veterans Administration Medical Center in Philadelphia. His lawyers said that his blood pressure dropped sharply several times while having eight teeth removed in 2007. "A federal judge Wednesday found Dr. Mark Abel negligent in not stopping the surgery. Ellison suffered a stroke and crashed his car as he drove home alone. He did not get to a hospital in time for post-stroke therapy, which sometimes prevents permanent damage."
