Failure to diagnose spinal infection causes permanent damage

When patients in Illinois are forced to visit a hospital, they may expect medical professionals to be capable of properly identifying and treating their conditions. Obtaining a correct diagnosis is generally the first step in administering the proper treatment, and should a doctor fail to provide a patient with the proper care, the harm to his or her health could be substantial. A woman has recently been awarded a judgment of $18 million after a failure to diagnose an infection in her spine left her with catastrophic injuries.

A family has recently reached a settlement with a medical facility after claiming that negligence during labor caused their child to suffer a permanent brain injury.
