$12.5 Million Settlement for Failure to Treat Brain Aneurysm

Attorneys Mark W. Tanner and Peter M. Newman recovered $12.5 million for a 44-year-old woman who suffered an intracranial hemorrhage when an aneurysm ruptured in her brain a year after she was seen by the defendant doctors with symptoms of an aneurysm. Radiologic studies ordered by the defendants had confirmed the existence of the aneurysm, but the defendants had failed to notify the patient that an aneurysm had been identified and failed to refer her to a neurosurgeon, depriving her of the treatment that would have prevented the subsequent rupture.

The victim, who led an active lifestyle prior to the aneurysm, is now totally dependent on others for all self-care and activities of daily living. The settlement will ensure that the victim’s medical and related care needs will be taken care of for the rest of her life.
