$17.6 MILLION AWARDED TO OLEAN MAN MISDIAGNOSED BRAIN ANEURYSM LEAVES VICTIM PARALYZED

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

By combination of trial judgment sustained after appeal and settlement, the family of a deceased man received over $17 and a half million in damages from a Western New York hospital system and two physicians who were found responsible for causing his injuries.  The victim became paralyzed after sustaining a massive stroke, which a jury concluded would have been avoided if a brain aneurysm suffered by the victim had not gone undiagnosed by the physicians and hospital responsible for his care. The judgment reflects the highest amount ever sustained on appeal in New York State to the spouse of an injured party at that time.
