Georgia Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Posted on Oct 06, 2009
The parents of newborn Haylee Kroll were told by physicians not to worry when large bruises appeared on her tiny body. Then her skin turned yellow, her liver showed signs of scarring and a blood clot formed in her brain. A few days later, her parents were advised to make funeral arrangements. Haylee survived, but her parents say doctors at a lcoal hospital misdiagnosed the virus that struck their baby soon after her, leaving her with lifelong disabilities. Now 15, their daughter has severe vision problems and permanent cirrhosis of the liver. Last week, a jury compensated the family $4.3 million in their medical malpractice suit against the doctors who treated Haylee.
