Startling Statistics

Each year in the U.S., as many as 4,000 people contract meningitis, an inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. And several hundred die from it, according to the World Health Organization.

Many of those who survive will suffer permanent disabilities, such as brain damage, hearing loss, loss of kidney function, and amputation to limbs.

In America, most cases of meningitis are caused by a viral infection, but bacterial and fungal infections also can lead to meningitis. Signs and symptoms of this condition include headache, fever, and a stiff neck.

Depending on the cause, meningitis can get better on its own in a couple of weeks, or it can be a life-threatening emergency requiring urgent antibiotic treatment.

Early diagnosis and proper treatment are critical.

But, tragically, physicians often fail to recognize the condition, leading to severe, life-altering consequences.

Common medical mistakes in this area include the failure to take the most basic steps, such as obtaining blood work, performing lumbar punctures, and ordering proper imaging studies both in the emergency room and while the person is an inpatient in the hospital.

The experienced attorneys at Ross Feller Casey are currently representing numerous plaintiffs throughout Pennsylvania, both adults, and young children, who were victims of a delay in diagnosing meningitis. These victims have been left with catastrophic brain injuries as a result of the negligent delay in providing proper treatment.
