Silverman Family Doctor Negligence

Family Doctor Negligence

$300,000.00 – Plaintiff, a Delaware County, PA resident, suddenly lost hearing in her left ear on the weekend. She called her family doctor’s service and was told to come in on Monday. When she did, the doctor told her she had “water on the ear” and prescribed and antibiotic for her. She called and returned after 2 week with no improvement and the doctor insisted on his original diagnosis. Plaintiff called again and demanded to see a specialist who eventually told her she had sudden hearing loss (SHL), not “water on the ear,” and that because the 3 week window for steroid therapy had expired, her one-sided hearing loss was permanent and untreatable.
