Failure to Diagnose and Treat Necrotizing Fasciitis

Practice Area: Medical Malpractice, Bodily Injury

Doe v. Roe Hospital

The plaintiff underwent what was seemingly an uneventful hysterectomy operation. However she was slow to recover and during her post operative course, the plaintiff manifested signs and symptoms that were consistent with the development of necrotizing fasciitis. Despite the progression of these symptoms, the plaintiff was misdiagnosed.

As a consequence of the misdiagnosis, the necrotizing fasciitis(also referred to as flesh eating bacteria) spread to other parts of the body. Ultimately, a diagnosis was made and proper treatment was instituted but not before plaintiff suffered disfiguring cosmetic injury and disability. This case was settled before trial for $1 million.

Resolution: $1 Million
