A woman is holding an orthopedic surgeon responsible for her paralyzed right arm after she required an operation to fix her fractured ulna, a large bone in her lower arm. The surgeon allegedly irreversibly injured the woman's ulna nerve during the corrective surgery resulting in reduced mobility of her lower arm. The woman's complaint is due to scarring, muscle atrophy and loss of function of her lower right arm, and the financial cost of the procedure and corresponding treatment.
