$17.5 Million Emergency Room Error Settlement

A 33-year-old woman went to Northwestern Memorial Hospital’s emergency room complaining of a horrible headache, a stiff neck and vomiting. She was sent home and instructed to take Tylenol. Ten days later an aneurysm ruptured in her brain, causing a stroke that left her partially paralyzed. Her memory and cognitive abilities are also severely impaired.
