Jim Mitchell Settles With Doctor After Failure to Diagnose Bone Fracture
Jim Mitchell settled a case against a doctor who misread an x ray showing a fractured pelvis on an elderly patient. The patient was presented to the emergency room of a local hospital after a serious fall. Despite clear signs of a fractured pelvis on the x ray imaging, the Emergency room doctor discharged the patient home without proper treatment for the injury. Subsequently the patient died from fatal complications which arose from bleeding at the untreated fracture site. Jim settled the case for a confidential amount.
