Woman Awarded $2.4 Million After Hospital in Maine Admits to Injuring Her Arm

A Frenchville woman was awarded $2.4 million after a Bangor hospital made a mistake during a routine procedure while she was under anesthesia in 2019, leading to lasting injuries to her left arm.

A jury decided Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center is responsible for the injury to the woman’s left arm and awarded $2.4 million for damages after deliberating Friday afternoon. They decided certified registered nurse anesthetist, Stacey Bruckler, a contracted employee, was not liable.

Brown filed a lawsuit in 2021 against the hospital and Bruckler. A settlement was not reached, so the lawsuit proceeded to trial. The jury heard from numerous witnesses and the woman, Louise Brown, during a five-day trial, before deliberations began Friday afternoon.
