ICU, Georgia State Court – Confidential settlement for a 34 year-old man who suffered severe brain damage when he was given repeated overdoses of fentanyl during his recovery from surgery. Our client was a husband and the father of two youngsters. He had recovered from surgery for injuries in a wreck when he was placed in the ICU. The wreck had caused broken ribs and bruised lungs. Following surgery, our client was placed on a ventilator so that his lungs could heal completely. For the next several days, he was overdosed with fentanyl, a drug used to control pain. When he was taken off the ventilator, he was under the influence of the fentanyl to the extent that he quit breathing. By the time he was revived, his brain had been deprived of oxygen so long that he was in a permanent vegetative state.
