A Boonsboro woman has filed a $20 million lawsuit against a dentist she claims caused permanent nerve damage that has left her with chronic pain that her lawyer compared to a 24-hour-a-day migraine headache.
According to the suit filed Wednesday in Washington County Circuit Court, Sandra J. Garcia visited Dr. John F. Seidel for a dental procedure in January 1995, and left with an incurable pain.
"I think this case is a substantial case and certainly falls in the seven-figure range," said attorney Leonard P. Buscemi. "This is not something you want to discuss with your kids, or they'll never want to go to the dentist."
