Doctor’s failure to diagnose hernia leads to $750,000 settlement

A 57-year-old female was admitted to a Suburban Chicago hospital with severe abdominal pain. However, her doctor failed to properly diagnose her condition, which was an acute hernia. As a result, the woman’s condition was left untreated and she sustained permanent injuries, including permanent staph and sinus infections, constant pain when eating, and a loss of bowel control.

Edmund J. Scanlan filed a failure to diagnose malpractice claim against the woman’s physician and the hospital, contending that had the doctor properly diagnosed her condition, she would not have sustained her injuries. The defendants apparently agreed with Scanlan’s analysis of the case, as they settled with the woman before trial for $750,000.
