$500,000 Partial Settlement in Death from Medical Malpractice After Motorcycle Accident
CASE RESULTS DEPEND ON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. PAST CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE WITH THE LAWYER OR LAW FIRM.
One ECTL attorneys served on the legal team that fought for the family of a 58-year old man who had been severely injured on a motor scooter late one night. The man’s family alleges that a radiologist failed to properly notice significant stenosis of the cervical spine on a cat scan, which created a delay in properly treating the man’s spinal cord injury. While that claim against the radiologist continues, the man’s family has settled their claim against a rehab center for not properly treating bedsores he developed at the center. The rehab center has settled with the family for $500,000 for their role in problems contributing to the man’s death. The claim against the radiologist who misread the man’s cat scan is continuing.
