A 16 year old girl loses her hearing in one ear following a procedure.
The plaintiff in this medical malpractice case was a 16 year old girl who lost her hearing in one ear following a tympanoplasty, a procedure to repair a hole in her eardrum. It was alleged that the hearing loss resulted from the antiseptic preparation used for the procedure. It was argued that the preparation was ototoxic and should not have been used for this particular procedure. (Attorney William Lane handled the case.)
