An $8 million settlement was reached in a medical malpractice case for a patient against a hospital and its staff for failing to diagnose a life-threatening condition. The patient was evaluated in the hospital for significant neurologic problems that required that the patient be admitted for a proper examination and treatment. The patient’s doctors failed to admit him to the hospital and treat his condition. These failures caused the patient to suffer a permanent brain injury resulting in lifelong problems with understanding, memory, speech, reading and writing. The settlement will provide the patient with the ability to obtain the care and services that he will require for the rest of his life.
