Brain bleed malpractice suit ends in confidential settlement
LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — A medical malpractice lawsuit that alleged negligent care caused a pregnant teenager to suffer catastrophic brain bleeding during surgery ended suddenly with a confidential settlement.
The lawyer for 22-year-old Analisa Ramos says no details of the settlement with Lancaster General Hospital can be revealed.
Pennlive.com reports Ramos has remained quadriplegic since an emergency C-section surgery in 2010.
At issue in the case was if then-15-year-old Ramos’ bleeding was caused by the girl’s medical care.
The settlement came Thursday morning, on the ninth day of what was projected to be a two-week trial.
Attorneys for Lancaster General didn’t respond to requests for comment, but previously denied Ramos’ claims.
Attorney Thomas Kline, who represents Ramos, didn’t ask for a specific dollar amount when the case was filed.
