— A Mississippi man was awarded more than $1.4 million in damages for injuries suffered during unnecessary brain surgery. Charles Connetti sued the doctors at Memorial Hospital in Gulfport and Charity Hospital in New Orleans in 2001. Surgeon Michael Lowry and radiologist Michael Diaz were accused of causing permanent neurological damage to Mr. Connetti. Dr. Lowry performed the surgery to remove a cyst. The cyst was in the brain of another patient, who later died.

In 2001, I was paralyzed by the negligence of my physician while undergoing routine surgery at a large teaching hospital in Jackson. Once I was released, I hired John D. Giddens Law Firm to represent me in this matter. John and his staff gave my case to their time, ensuring me and my case got the attention we deserved. John got to know me and my case personally, returned my telephone calls promptly, and informed me about the progress of the case daily. He discussed with me my rights and legal options in detail, making sure I understood his advice. John is a creative lawyer, he examined the details and facts of my case and provided me with an analyses of my legal options at each stage. When my case was resolved, John handled the details of the disbursements personally and our relationship did not end there. I continue to seek the advice of John’s counsel and consider John my lawyer for life, as well as a good friend.
