The plaintiff was represented by the law firm of Corboy & Demetrio.

On August 29, he underwent a cerebral angiogram of the right middle cerebral artery to map the arteries in preparation for surgery to bypass or clip the aneurysm. Shortly after the procedure, the plaintiff had a seizure. An emergency CT scan showed a right middle cerebral artery air embolism. the plaintiff now suffers from left-sided weakness and cognitive changes. He is unable to return to work.
