Man Misdiagnosed in ER recovers $900K


This is a settlement for the Medical Malpractice lawsuit.

Newark, NJ: A man who suffered a delayed diagnosis of bacterial staphylococcus and meningitis, serious viral infections, and who suffered a stroke as a result of the infections, was awarded $900K in his medical malpractice lawsuit.

Primitio Candaleria took himself to the emergency room at Kennedy University Hospital because he had a fever and was suffering from tachycardia. The ER physician on duty ordered blood work but then went off duty. The doctor that replaced him on the next shift diagnosed a viral infection and discharged Candaleria. However, Candaleria went back to the same ER three days later, which is when he was diagnosed with bacterial staphylococcus and meningitis. He suffered a stroke that left him with diminished cognitive ability.

I have retained law firm in medical malpractice case in Minnesota in 1 matter involving removed upper left lung on November 7th 2016.
I have a open table for a second lawsuit against a hospital located in St Paul Minnesota for wrongful medical negligence and misdiagnosed X-ray and C.T. scans because I was discharged and told to shut my f*cking mouth and go die quietly by two Emergency Room doctors and because another hospital found pulmonary embolism in right lung on same-day after being willfully excited with police escort by a medical doctor making threats and false statement of interest. I am seeking action at Regions Hospital, other case in Hennepin County underway and filed.
