Frekhtman & Associates, Brooklyn and Bronx Personal Injury Lawyers recover $1,400,000.00 for child
An infant recovered $1,400,000.00 in a medical malpractice case involving failure to diagnose a brain tumor which pressed on his optic nerve and caused blindness. The delay in diagnosis was brief, only about 4 months from the onset of symptoms until the time when his pediatrician correctly diagnosed the condition. Because of this many medical experts said there was no causation or that the blindness was not caused by the failure to diagnose. His attorneys were persistent and kept speaking to specialists until an expert made the connection. Prior to trial, the parties negotiated a $1,400,000.00 settlement which was approved by Brooklyn Supreme Court of the State of New York in an Infant’s Compromise Order.
