A 14-year-old boy suffering from Burkett's Lymphoma repeatedly complained of severe back pain, but his doctors failed to order an MRI to determine whether a lesion or tumor was causing pressure to his spinal cord. During exploratory surgery, the spinal circulation was obstructed, causing the young patient to suffer permanent paralysis.Following depositions of the medical personnel in this medical malpractice case, we obtained a $7.5 million settlement from the hospital, the surgeon and neurologist.
