settlement for the 40 year old woman with an undiagnosed brain aneurysm.
||Plaintiff went to a
city hospital complaining of severe, debilitating headaches. A CT
scan was performed and plaintiff was admitted to the hospital. Hospital
staff either misread or failed to read the CT scan, and plaintiff
remained in the hospital, without proper treatment, for four days.
On the fifth day, plaintiff was diagnosed with a sub-arachnoid hemorrhage
due to an aneurysm, and was immediately transferred to Bellevue Hospital
for neurosurgery to clip the aneurysm. Plaintiff had mild residual
neurological deficits. Defendants claimed that plaintiff’s permanent
injuries were the expected result of the aneurysm itself and the surgical
clipping, and not the delay. Plaintiff claimed that if the hemorrhage
had been found sooner she would not have had any permanent damage.
Amy Rosenbloom negotiated a $1,200,000 pre-trial settlement for plaintiff.
