  1. Georgia: $15 Million Award for a Fall off of an Examination Table

A Georgia truck driver went to a medical clinic for a routine physical, including needing blood withdrawn from some evaluations. While at the clinic, the office employee advised the truck driver to sit on the examination table while blood was going to be drawn. After the clinic employee finished, she turned away for a moment while reaching for a band-aid. At that very moment, the driver passed out and fell forward, breaking his neck. He was left paralyzed and unable to perform his daily tasks without assistance. Attorneys argued that he should have been lying down or sitting in a chair with armrests to avoid falling.
