Firm Wins Verdict for Misdiagnosis of Ruptured Ectopic Pregnancy
Jury Verdict: $41 Million
A woman's death was caused by the misdiagnosis of her ectopic pregnancy. Her husband and five children were awarded $41 million in damages after a five-hour deliberation by a Brooklyn jury. The plaintiff was aware she was several months pregnant when she started experiencing severe stomach pains, but after two visits to the hospital she was misdiagnosed with a urinary tract infection. She died three weeks later while waiting for an ambulance to arrive after an Emergency Medical Services team refused to carry her down the stairs and take her to hospital. The hospital responsible conceded negligence.
