Failure To Diagnose Resulting in Brain Damage

Tommy Hastings handled this medical malpractice case against physicians and a hospital in the Houston area involving the failure to diagnose whooping cough in an infant. Even though the pneumonia was clearly depicted on an X-ray, the physician pulled up the wrong X-ray on the computer to review. Furthermore, the hospital failed to follow up with the mother when the mistake was caught later that morning. The baby suffered a stroke as a result of the delay in treatment. Working with expert witnesses from the top children’s hospitals in Houston, Colorado and Utah, Tommy was able to secure a significant settlement for the child’s future needs.
