Doctor Misdiagnoses Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Boy Sustains Permanent Injury
In the case of Kyle Jim v. Via Christi Medical Center, an eleven-year-old boy repeatedly went to see the doctor for treatment of a fever and a rash. The doctor’s failure to diagnose his illness as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever resulted in the loss of both of the boys’ legs, four fingers, and his ability to hear and speak. The medical malpractice claim against the doctor and medical center responsible for the misdiagnosis resulted in a significant verdict for the boy.
Verdict: $9 million
