DALLAS, TX—In this year’s listing of top verdicts, Texas Lawyer magazine names a $21 million verdict in an AldousWalker LLP case as the largest medical malpractice courtroom win in the state in 2022.
The October 2022 verdict was the largest medical malpractice claim and the 20th largest in Texas overall. Firm partners Charla Aldous and Brent Walker were lead counsel on the case, which focused on 32-year-old Carlos Rojas, who was left in a vegetative state after undergoing anesthesia during surgery to repair a broken leg at Baylor University Medical Center in 2017.
The Dallas County jury found providers with US Anesthesia Partners were negligent during the surgery when they failed to monitor Carlos’ blood pressure readings, which would have indicated dangerously low oxygen levels. Instead, Carlos suffered permanent brain damage caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain.
