Record result for 65-year-old woman with cerebral aneurysm resulting in significant brain injuries.

Our brain injury lawyers represented a 65-year-old woman who was found to have a cerebral aneurysm. While the aneurysm was being treated it ruptured causing her significant brain injuries. Her injuries included quadraparesis and moderate to severe cognitive injuries necessitating 24 hour care. Plaintiff had a history of cancer and was receiving periodic CT scans to look for metastasis. Plaintiff contended that the aneurysm was visible on one of the CT scans and could have been diagnosed before she had a bleed. When the bleed occurred, the aneurysm was diagnosed and intervention attempted. Plaintiff claimed that the intervention was undertaken by personnel who were not properly trained in coiling techniques for aneurysms and caused the rupture. The defendants contended that in the original CT scan the aneurysm looked like bone in the sella and not an aneurysms. The interventional radiologists contended that this was an emergency situation and that intervention was necessary to save her life. They further stated that the rupture occurred spontaneously and was not related to anything they did during the procedure. This was a record result for a brain injury to a person of this age in this state.
