Court: Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas
Jury Awards $3 Million Against St. Vincent Hospital and Physician
Medical malpractice case in which plaintiff presented with pain in wrist. An x-ray was not taken, resulting in a 2 12 month delay in diagnosis of MFH, a bone sarcoma. Plaintiff argued that timely diagnosis would have lead to limb saving surgery, i.e. a fusion of wrist. Defendants claimed no x-ray necessary and amputation was unavoidable if timely diagnosed. Plaintiff sustained amputation of right upper extremity below elbow, instead of resection and fusion with allograft.
