Principal Injury Giving Rise To The Claim
Disputed allegation by this then 42 year old male who presented to the hospital ER with history of "trauma" / "smash injury" Plaintiff alleged that the interpretation of the non-contrast CT scan of the cervical spine failed to note findings potentially consistent with a pre-existing epidural abscess, which was also not seen on CT scans and MRI done 2 days later and was later only found as an unexpected, coincidental finding on exploratory surgery. The claim was asserted against the practitioner and her practice group, each of which had a separate $500,000 limit of liability with their insurer. The settlement payment was made by the insurer to resolve the claims against both the practitioner and her practice group. The settlement is confidential.
Severity Of Injury
Permanent: Major - Paraplegia, blindness, loss of two limbs, brain damage.
