Medical Malpractice for Failure to Diagnose Hemorrhage – $1.3 million recovery for a child whose doctors failed to diagnose and treat his brain hemorrhage. The radiologist failed to diagnose the hemorrhage on the radiology studies of the child’s brain, and the pediatrician failed to diagnose the child’s hydrocephalus notwithstanding the child’s abnormally large head circumference. Subsequent physicians made the proper diagnosis, and surgically placed a shunt system in the child’s brain. The delay in diagnosis and treatment lessened the effectiveness of the subsequent surgical treatment, resulting in neurological impairment.
