Medical Malpractice found for failure to diagnose and treat condition
Our client was a young woman who was a passenger in a car involved in a single-vehicle accident. Her primary injury was a skull fracture. While she was being treated in the hospital, she became light and noise sensitive and began complaining of severe headaches which worsened. Two days later she became comatose and died. The autopsy determined that her death was the result of meningitis which was never diagnosed by her treating physicians.
