MISDIAGNOSIS OF A BRAIN ANEURYSM

Practice Area: Medical Malpractice, Bodily Injury, Brain/Head Injury

Timothy Justice v. Humana Hospital
Alaska Superior Court, Anchorage Alaska

Timothy Justice suffered a brain aneurysm which was misdiagnosed at Humana Hospital in Anchorage, Alaska and later at the USC Medical Center in Los Angeles. Before a lawsuit was filed, USC Medical Center settled the case in California, but the Alaska defendants decided to go to trial. After a lengthy, contentious trial and extended deliberation, the jury returned a record verdict for Mr. Justice. The $1.3 million verdict was reported at the time to be the largest medical malpractice verdict in the history of Alaska.

Prior to this case, Alaska juries had returned few verdicts for victims of medical malpractice. After the Alaska trial court entered judgment for nearly $1.9 million, the litigation was concluded resulting in a global settlement of $2.3 million.

Resolution: $2.3 Million
