$600,000 Settlement – Improper Treatment for Infection (Charlotte County, FL)

An injury to a child is always a tragedy.  It is made worse when the people a parent trusts with their child is the cause of the child’s harm.

Leighton Law managing partner John Elliott Leighton obtained a $600,000 recovery on behalf of a teenage boy who was improperly treated for an infection.  The boy presented to the emergency room with signs of an infection.  Blood tests were performed but the family was not notified that a serious infection was present, which required immediate antibiotic therapy.  Days went by without the hospital informing the family of the infection , which could have been easily treated. The delay in treatment caused permanent injury to the child. A confidential settlement was reached with the hospital for its medical mistake.  This is an example of failed policies and negligence by the people who are supposed to be communicating lab results.
