Mossing & Navarre LLC attorneys, Adria Mossing, Jim Navarre and Merna Abusamen obtained an $8.5 million-dollar medical malpractice settlement on March 23, 2022 against a Chicagoland medical group on behalf of a woman who suffered permanent brain damage due to an undiagnosed ruptured aneurysm.
The Plaintiff was seen several times at the Defendant medical group’s office for new onset headaches. The Plaintiff alleged that the medical providers failed to timely recognize that the headaches could be due to a neurological cause and failed to send the Plaintiff to the emergency department for a work-up which included a CT scan and lumbar puncture, if necessary. The Defendant medical group argued that it was reasonable for the providers to diagnose the Plaintiff with a sinus infection and send her home as she had no neurological deficits. After 10 days of inaction on the part of the medical providers, the Plaintiff suffered a catastrophic rupture of the brain aneurysm resulting in permanent brain injury. She is no longer able to work and resides in a long-term care facility.
Plaintiff settled the case after 8 days of trial at the close of the Plaintiff’s case.
