Victim Left with Drop Foot after 2 Month Delay in Spinal Cord Compression Diagnosis

A delay in the diagnosis of a fracture of the 12th thoracic vertebra after the client fell from a ladder resulted in this medical malpractice case. The fracture caused compression of the spinal cord, and due to the 6-8 week delay in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of this condition, the client was left with a drop foot that would not have resulted from the initial fall. Spinal cord injury claim was litigated by malpractice attorneys at Rosen Louik & Perry. This case was settled for $850,000.00.
