Advocate Capital, Inc. extends congratulations to our friends and clients, Mark Taylor and Anjulie Ponce. The Texas-based lawyers of Powers Taylor LLP have just recently helped Dallas local, Tanya Valentine, obtain a jury verdict of $989,000 after the wrongful amputation of her leg.
This all began when defendant, Dr. John Stasikowski, mistook a staph infection for osteomyelitis 14 months after Valentine underwent ankle correction surgery. This presumption led to the wrongful amputation of Valentine’s leg. The defense tried to move forward by insisting Valentine’s prior ankle pain was so severe that it would have led them to recommend amputation.
Due to the hard work and dedication of Taylor and Ponce, they were able to disprove this theory, entitling Valentine the $989,000 verdict after the traumatic experience she endured.
