Failure to Timely Treat Infection Results in $1.65 Million Settlement
A ten year old girl presented herself at the emergency room of a local hospital with signs and symptoms suggestive of a brain infection known as Viral Encephalitis. Unfortunately, the staff physicians and specialists on call failed to timely recognize her infection and treat with an anti viral medication. After five full days of trial and the testimony of five experts, the local hospital and specialists settled the claim with the family. Unfortunately, as a result of the infection, this now 22 year old young woman suffers from profound brain injury.
