$2,175,000 – Failure to Timely Diagnose

March 27th, 2020 Results

Failure to Timely Diagnose and Treat a Child’s Brain Tumor. This tragic matter involved the alleged failure to order an MRI of the brain made worse by miscommunication between a pediatrician and pediatric neurologist resulting in an eight-month delay in diagnosing a 5-year-old’s brain tumor.  Unfortunately, after two surgeries to remove the tumor, it reoccurred and eventually took the life 5 years later of this brave and beautiful child.  We never gave up, persisting even after defense cancer experts and the child’s brain surgeon informed that even with a prompt diagnosis the tumor was a rare one and may have reoccurred whether or not there was a timely diagnosis.

Fellows Hymowitz took on a difficult case which ended in a positive resolution. The professionalism and dedication of the entire staff was overwhelming. They handled my case as if it was there own. There was no double talk or redundant paper work. They kept the case moving forward in a positive flow with continuous communication and explanation of each step. I highly recommend this firm.
