Family Awarded $60 Million In Cosmetic Death Lawsuit

 Thursday, December 20, 2018


In unanimous fashion, a Cobb County jury awarded the Jenkins family millions of dollars on Tuesday during a civil trial in state court. "I was just thanking God because he gave us the endurance to be here," said Audrey Jenkins, the victim’s sister. The verdict was an emotional ending to years of pain and suffering. "Well $60 million is a lot of money and plus like I say all the money in the world can’t bring her back," said Hal Jenkins, the victim’s father. "I would have preferred her being here more so than the money." April Jenkins died five years ago following a liposuction procedure with Dr. Nedra Dodds at Opulence Aesthetic Medicine in Kennesaw. Neither Dodds nor her legal team showed up for the trial.
