a doctor would ask.
A 44 year old woman with an aneurysm was misdiagnosed and is now in a permanently vegetative state. Her husband sued and received an unspecified very 'generous' payout. A 24 year old woman complained of leg and back pain. MRI was read by neurologist instead of radiologist and thus a spinal tumour went undetected. It was the size of an egg by the time it was acknowledged and removed. She now has little feeling in her right leg and foot. She sued and received minimal compensation.
