Plaintiff's Attorney: Jared R. Green, Esq.

 

Case Title:    Anonymous v. Anonymous

 

County:      Confidential   Date of Injury: 2004

Plaintiff:  Sex:  Age at time of injury:16

 

Occupation:student

 

Plaintiff's Theory of Liability:.  The plaintiff alleged that the defendant radiologist misread an MRI which showed that she was suffering from a Type I Chiari Malformation.

 

Defendant's Theory of Defense:    The defendant claimed that the treatment provided was reasonable and appropriate and the interpretation of the diagnostic tests was not below the standard of care.

 

Injuries:  (Diagnosis/Prognosis/Permanency): Because the Chiari Malformation was not identified on the MRI, the plaintiff continued to suffer daily headaches, speaking problems, loss of concentration and coordination until it was properly diagnosed and treated approximately fifteen months later.

 

VERDICT/SETTLEMENT: The case settled after suit but before trial for a confidential amount.
