Successful Settlement – Doctors Failed to Diagnose Blood Infection

Home / Successful Settlement – Doctors Failed to Diagnose Blood Infection

Compensation: Undisclosed

Keith Gross recently settled a medical malpractice case in which two doctors — one from an urgent care facility and the other the patient’s regular doctor — failed to timely diagnose and properly treat our client’s endocarditis, commonly known as an infection of the heart.

“Our client had a congenital heart murmur, which both doctors knew about. The murmur was caused by a ventricular septal defect, a pre-existing hole in the heart wall which separates the two lower chambers, and which put him at increased risk for developing a heart valve infection. Despite weeks of symptoms including an unexplained fever, and the heart murmur, the doctors failed to order tests that would have confirmed the infection (bacteremia) at a time when it could have been successfully treated by intravenous antibiotics.”
Keith GrossMedical Malpractice Lawyer, Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm

The failure to timely diagnose and treat the infection resulted in the bacteria seeding and damaging our client’s aortic heart valve, requiring open-heart surgery to replace the valve and to remove other areas of damage. It was our position that this surgery could and should have been avoided by a timely diagnosis and treatment.
