June 26, 2018

Ramsey County, Minnesota
Court File No. 62-CV-08-11206

Claims asserted: plaintiff asserted negligence against a pediatrician for a failure to diagnose and treat a tumor in a pediatric patient. Further, plaintiff asserted a violation of the standard of care in failing to order appropriate radiographic testing which allegedly resulted in a delay in diagnosis and medical treatment. Plaintiff asserted that if the tumor had been diagnosed earlier, the plaintiff would not have suffered subsequent vision loss and neurological deficits. Outcome: Defense verdict, January 2010.
