Failure to diagnose neck fracture
Our 70-year-old client fell down the basement stairs of her Levittown home injuring her neck. She was taken to a local emergency room where a CAT scan was misread, and she was discharged with a broken bone in her neck. She later lost use of her legs and died from complications of this injury. At jury selection in Nassau County, we secured compensation for her spouse and adult children for their tragic loss.
