Teen Awarded $1.4M in Medical Malpractice Lawsuit


This is a settlement for the Medical Malpractice lawsuit.

Detroit, MI: An allergy specialist reached a $1.4 million settlement in a medical malpractice claim brought by a 13-year-old patient receiving a regularly-scheduled immunotherapy allergy injection. The suit alleged that the teen developed an acute anaphylaxis reaction in the form of respiratory distress and loss of consciousness. He was transferred by EMS to a hospital, where he was successfully resuscitated.

Thereafter, the teen was transferred to a tertiary care facility, but was comatose for several weeks. He regained consciousness, but was severely brain-damaged and suffered near-complete quadriplegia. The parties reached a $1,400,000 settlement agreement shortly after discovery commenced.
