A $20.5 million settlement was reached for a plaintiff who was permanently paralyzed and disabled after doctors failed to diagnose a ruptured common iliac aneurysm in time for treatment.
The plaintiff went to an emergency room with pain in his abdomen, nausea and vomiting. A CT scan showed several large aneurysms in his abdomen but radiologists allegedly failed to diagnose that one was bleeding. An MRI was ordered but not done. He was transferred to a sister hospital where a CT scan showed a free rupture from the iliac artery aneurysm. He was then immediately rushed into surgery. Today he is permanently paralyzed and suffers from chronic and unrelenting pain.
Evidence Video produced a Day in the Life over a span of two months to show all the special care required as the result of catastrophic injuries suffered by the plaintiff.
Plaintiff attorneys: Attorneys Patrick A. Salvi, Patrick A. Salvi II, Matthew L. Williams, Thomas R. Mulroy III, John A. Mennie and Carly E. Shannon, Salvi, Schostok & Prichard P.C.
