A woman filed a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging negligence in the treatment of her son. She contends that a negligent medical procedure resulted in permanent injuries to her son.
According to the complaint, in January 2015, the child was taken to the medical facility and diagnosed with having a large cystic neoplasm. After a required CT scan, the suit says, an attempt to remove a tooth was not successful due to an extensive rush of blood. The child was transferred to a local children’s hospital to undergo another surgery. There he sustained respiratory failure following trauma and surgery, an acute ischemic left a middle cerebral artery (MCA) stroke and bleeding, according to the claim. The child was left with aphasia and right hemiparesis, the suit says.
The plaintiff alleges that the defendants failed to properly and adequately evaluate the cyst or tumor, leading to permanent and severe neurological disability. As a result, she suffered loss of earning capacity, medical expenses and mental anguish.
