John Edwards States Vidant Medical Settlement Reaches 13 Million

John Edward’s first return to the court room as a personal injury lawyer since his time as a scandalized presidential hopeful ended in a mistrial and hefty settlement agreement.

John Edward’s was the personal injury lawyer for the Gaymon family, of Virginia, who ¬†accused a Pitt County emergency room doctor of negligence when choices made resulted in brain damage and other problems for their 4 year old son, Kaiden. The boy’s surgery took place in 2009 at the now renamed Vidant Medical Center.

In early 2009, Kaiden Gaymon was taken to Vidant Medical Center and diagnosed with a respiratory virus. Unfortunately, the oxygen respirator and breathing tube used on Kaiden was not working properly, nor properly monitored, and the boy endured several minutes without adequate oxygen, which resulted in brain damage and other problems.

The Pitt County jury was deadlocked in deciding if the doctor should be held completely responsible for the emergency room results that left the 4 year old boy irreversibly brain damaged.

Along with suing the emergency room doctor, the Gaymon family also sued Vidant Medical Center. Though the Pitt County jury trial resulted in a deadlock, Vidant Medical Center did agree to a $13 Million settlement for Kaiden’s family, which will help the family greatly to get Kaiden all the health care he now will need the rest of his life.

John Edwards plans to call for a retrial on behalf of Kaiden’s family against the doctor accused.
