Josh was only a teenager when he was paralyzed by a surgeon who negligently plunged an instrument he was using into Josh’s spinal cord, causing permanent damage. Despite the obvious negligence Dr. Lindell’s insurance company, ProAssurance, denied his claim and fought the case for many years by delaying the case and hiring lawyers to take the case to trial. Thankfully a Jury found in favor of Josh, and his mom and dad, providing the family the largest verdict in Lucas County history. Josh has used this compensation for education, equipment and housing better equipped for his paralysis and future medical care, including research and care into curing his paralysis.
