Our client, a very pleasant elderly woman living in Brooklyn, went to the hospital emergency department after complaining of severe headaches due to a fall a few days prior. The hospital examined her, and, based upon her complaints, ordered a CT scan of her head. The doctors told our client that the CT scan was normal, and instructed her to return home to rest. Unfortunately, our client passed away that same week due to a brain bleed which the hospital doctors failed to see on the CT scans. We consulted with several renowned experts in the field of radiology, none of whom could fathom how the doctors in the hospital could have misread the CT scans which showed the brain bleed so glaringly. We obtained a confidential amount of compensation for the victim’s family, well into the 6 figures. Perhaps more importantly, we were able to give the family closure and a sense of justice in spite of this terrible event.The information provided on this website does not, and is not intended to, constitute legal advice; instead, all information, content, and materials available on this site are for general informational purposes only.
