Doctor is successfully sued in medical malpractice to the tune of $ 116 Million now sues his defense attorneys for not settling in the $ 1,5 million dollar range..
"Doctors who lost a malpractice lawsuit to the tune of $116.7 million are now suing their lawyers, saying the attorneys were negligent.
A Hillsborough County jury in October ordered the doctors to pay Allan Navarro, who went to University Community Hospital in Carrollwood on Aug. 9, 2000, with nausea, a headache, dizziness, confusion and double vision.
