$4.125 Million - Failure to Diagnose Quadriplegia

The client a 48-year-old female was in her usual state of health when she began presenting to multiple providers complaining of new-onset neurological deficits.  Despite very concerning and gradually worsening evidence of likely spinal compression she was not offered the indicated MRI or Ct scans and was discharged from an ER without a diagnosis after being given opiate pain meds IV.  Not surprisingly her condition progressed to irreversible quadriplegia which was determined to have resulted from prolonged cord compression secondary to undiagnosed benign cervical mass.
