$1.9 Million Medical Malpractice Settlement For Misdiagnosis Leading To Paralysis.

Medical professionals are required to go to school for years, because as a medical professional, we are trusting them to make decisions and diagnose us properly so that we can get better. When something goes wrong due to the negligence of a medical professional, a medical malpractice personal injury lawsuit is often the only way to get justice. However, one thing we often forget is that even when a settlement is reached, no amount of money can adequately compensate someone, especially a young girl, who, because of a medical error, will not be able to walk down the aisle on her wedding day. While a monetary settlement may not be able to fully compensate a victim of medical malpractice, it may be the best way for them to begin to recover.

In February 2014, six-year-old Wynter Przybylski was very sick. Her parents took her to a walk-in clinic in Brewer, Maine and then to see the girl’s pediatrician. Both diagnosed her with severe constipation, but the recommended treatment only made her worse. Four days after being diagnosed by her doctor, Wynter was diagnosed with acute leukemia and was undergoing treatment at the Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine. It was soon clear that the doctor had found the answer and her treatment was starting to work. However, the delay in treatment caused “sticky” leukemia cells to block the flow of blood from the girl’s lower spine to her legs, rendering her paralyzed. Wynter, now 9, was cured of leukemia thanks to a bone marrow transplant, but she is expected to use a wheelchair for the rest of her life because her problem wasn’t caught in time.

Orlando City Soccer Club forward Cyle Larin was arrested recently in Orlando, Florida and charged with driving under the influence. Investigators said a trooper spotted a white Cadillac shortly after 2:30 a.m. traveling the wrong way on the South Ivanhoe Boulevard ramp. The vehicle reportedly merged onto North Orange Avenue and continued to travel in the wrong direction and in the wrong lanes, so the trooper pulled the driver over. The driver stopped in the middle of the road and an oncoming Mercedes stopped within feet of the vehicle, preventing a head-on collision, according to the arrest report. The trooper described the man’s eyes as bloodshot and said that the vehicle smelled of alcohol.

The trooper asked the driver to pull into an adjacent parking lot, where he identified himself as Cyle Larin. A field sobriety test was performed. Larin, whose speech was slurred and who had difficulty answering questions, told the trooper that he and his female passenger were coming back from the Ono Nightclub in downtown Orlando, Florida but he said he hadn’t drunk any alcohol. Later, Larin told the trooper he had “two to three Vodka Red Bulls.” He was arrested and taken to the Orange County Jail, where he blew a .179 and .182 during breathalyzer tests, which is more than double the legal limit in Florida.
