At an emergency room, a child was given a traumatic lumbar puncture that was below the standard of care. That traumatic lumbar tap caused a hematoma to develop that compressed his spinal cord. Government medical care providers again breached the standard of care by failing to diagnose the spinal cord compression. Our clients received $1,955,638 and $44,027 in paid medical liens with lifetime benefits . Other case fees include $750,000 for attorneys’ fees and $257,497 in litigation expenses.
