The ex-Giants running back will receive compensation for future pain and suffering, lost earnings and for past pain and suffering.

Michael Cox Jr., a former New York Giants running back, has reportedly won a huge verdict in a case arising from allegations of medical malpractice in connection with surgery to repair an ankle injury that he suffered in December 2014.

According to the New York Post, Cox won $28.5 million against now-deceased Dr. Dean Lorich and New York-Presbyterian Hospital. He will receive $15.5 million for future pain and suffering, $12 million for lost earnings, and $1 million for past pain and suffering.

Lorich passed away a year after the lawsuit was filed, in what was ruled a suicide.

“The jury spoke with a clear and unambiguous voice that Mr. Cox received inadequate medical care and treatment and was significantly injured as a result,” Cox’s attorney, Jordan Merson, said, according to the Post. “We are pleased with the jury’s decision.”

Cox was a seventh-round pick in 2013 from Massachusetts who had 76 career rushing yards in 18 professional regular-season games. He also returned 31 kickoffs, averaging 22.5 yards per return.
