Compensation: $7.5 Million
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.
