A young girl’s cervical cancer diagnosis was significantly delayed as a result of a variety of healthcare providers failing to work up her complaints of persistent vaginal bleeding. Mr. Van Naarden obtained this record setting verdict in Reading County, PA. This very complicated medical malpractice matter involved multiple defendants who all maintained that it was appropriate to provide no testing to a then 11 year old girl that had constant vaginal bleeding. During the course of the trial several defendants eventually resolved their claims, however Reading Hospital refused to admit any fault. The matter then proceeded to verdict focusing on the culpability of Reading Hospital and ultimately a significant portion of the verdict was apportioned to them. This is another case where Mr. Van Naarden was able to defy the odds in an unfavorable forum where there had not been a medical malpractice plaintiff verdict in many years.
