Vicitim is Awarded $11.7 Million for Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
A California jury awarded $11.7 million in the medical malpractice case of a 45-year-old victim who suffered a stroke because doctors failed to treat an infection that spread to his brain. Five days after the man went to a Mission Viejo hospital emergency room with a severe headache, he suffered a massive stroke that paralyzed him on the left side of his body, confining him to a wheelchair and bed. This medical malpractice lawsuit was brought against the radiologist and the emergency room attending physician. I hope that this case will send a message to emergency room physicians around the country that they should exercise more care when treating emergency room patients.
