A jury awarded an elderly couple nearly $2 million dollars in a medical malpractice case against St. Vincent’s Hospital in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Medical Malpractice Lawyers Fight Hospital Negligence
The Ginisi’s (Lauren, 59 and Joseph, 63) filed suit three years ago, after Joseph suffered multiple misdiagnoses at St. Vincent’s. In 2004, Joe Ginisi called his wife Laura complaining of feeling lighted headed and dizzy. At the hospital, doctors diagnosed him with vertigo and sent him home with a prescription and an order to follow-up. By February 5, his condition had worsened. He couldn’t speak on his own, and was going blind.
Later, an MRI and a brain biopsy revealed that not only had Mr. Ginisi suffered from strokes, he was also suffering from intravascular lymphoma – a type of cancer. Even after St. Vincent’s transferred Mr. Ginisi to Massachusetts General, they did not send with him his slides and films. Treatment was again delayed.
Medical Malpractice Lawyers Fight for Full and Fair Compensation
The chemo-therapy that Mr. Ginisi finally received put his cancer in remission, but the damage had already been done. He can’t see, can’t walk, and can’t be cared for by his wife. He lives at the Millbury Health Care Center, and will likely remain there for the rest of his life. Mrs. Ginisi has lost her husband, and her husband, a relatively young man, has lost his independence. The Millbury jury awarded Joe Ginisi $1.39 million in damages, and his wife $500,000 for loss of consortium.
