$15M MEDICAL MALPRACTICE SETTLEMENT FOR FAILURE TO DIAGNOSE STREP THROAT
Max True was a two-year-old who had just started his first few weeks in day care. As is common, several kids in his day care were sick with the flu and strep throat; unfortunately, unbeknownst to his parents, Max caught strep throat. Max’s parents took care of him at home for several days and then took him to a local urgent care for testing.
Max was only seen for several minutes by a very rushed physician, after which he was quickly diagnosed with a virus and sent home. No strep throat test was done, despite many symptoms that made it likely this is what he had. Max’s strep throat evolved into sepsis and septic shock, which occurs when the bacterial infection spreads throughout the body. Max was brought back to a hospital two days later, but by then the infection resulted in brain damage and the necessity of having both legs and both arms amputated.
Crandall & Pera Law, LLC’s own Steve Crandall filed a lawsuit on behalf of Max and his entire family and was able to successfully obtain a $15M settlement. This settlement will allow crucial future medical care, including a specially equipped van, a specially outfitted home, prosthetics and therapy, to be provided to Max for his continued improvement.
Why did this happen in the first place? Doctors are often encouraged to use “templated exam” forms to be able to see more patients, faster. They even receive bonuses based on how many patients they can see in a certain time period. Patients, like Max True, suffer due to these practices that are widespread in healthcare facilities.
