Jury Awards $10.7 Million in Negligence Suit

A jury has awarded $10.7 million in a negligence case to 71-year-old Candida Diego. Diego was taken to NY Hospital Medical Center of Queens after she had fallen down the stairs at the pharmacy where she worked as a cashier and cracked her skull. Diego waited two hours for a brain scan “less than an hour before she lapsed into a coma in the emergency room,” the Daily News reports. She now has no movement on her left side and needs the use of a wheelchair. Their lawyer pointed out the hospital is a “level one trauma center” but didn’t respond like one.
