On May 5, 2016 a $385,000 settlement was reached before jury selection was to commence for a 44 year old male whose condition was misdiagnosed
On June 17, 2012 Plaintiff, with no known significant past medical history, experienced sharp groin pain while exercising on a treadmill. He presented to a hospital ER and advised of this pain, was examined but no x-rays were taken which Plaintiff’s expert orthopedic-surgeon claimed was a departure from accepted medical practice. Plaintiff was discharged from the ER the same date. Three days later he collapsed and underwent open reduction internal fixation for multiple fractures. Two years later he developed avascular necrosis necessitating a total hip replacement.
