Jury awards Las Vegas man $6.6M in an auto accident case against Dr. Farooq Abdulla
A Las Vegas mechanic was awarded nearly $6.6 million Friday in a lawsuit accusing a Dr. Farooq Abdulla of striking his car shortly after both men left the auto shop where he worked.
Volungis’ attorney, Dennis Prince, told the jury in April that neonatal pediatrician Farooq Abdulla left the Pep Boys at 7399 W. Lake Mead Blvd., near Tenaya Way, one evening in July 2013 and made an unsafe lane change seconds from the store’s parking lot, crashing into the mechanic’s white 1996 Cadillac. Volungis had clocked out about the same time Abdulla left the shop and was driving to his home about 2 miles away when the crash happened.
Dr. Farooq Abdulla is a neonatologist in Las Vegas, Nevada and is affiliated with multiple hospitals in Las Vegas. He received his medical degree from Dow Medical College, Karachi, Pakistan and has been in practice for more than 23 years. Dr. Abdulla completed his internship at Tulane University and Residency in Pediatrics at Louisiana State University Medical Center, Shreveport, Louisiana.
In 2000, Dr. Abdulla settled a lawsuit for $1,000,000. The lawsuit alleged that umbilical artery catheter (UAC) and umbilical venous catheter (UVC) were mal positioned, leading to patient’s cardiac arrest. Infant patient was revived, but received significant permanent neurological damage and had been diagnosed with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy and cerebral palsy.
