A 45 year old man was awarded $2.5 million after two doctors misdiagnosed his broken back following a car crash in 1997. It is alleged that the man was sent to physical therapy even though he reported constant back pain. He was tested months later and his broken back was revealed. He developed a permanent, painful condition where his spine bends forwards making it impossible for him to hold up his head. He also suffers from depression and is unable to work.
