Victim of Hospital's Failure to Diagnose Awarded $6 million in Hawaii Medical Malpractice Suit

Posted on Feb 24, 2009
From the Honolulu Star Bulletin:

"A 45-year-old rancher won $6 million this week in a medical malpractice lawsuit against a Wahiawa physician.

In an Oahu Circuit Court judgment filed Monday, Antonio Richardson won $4.1 million in special damages and $2 million in general damages against physician Arnold Seid.

According to court records, Richardson went to Seid in 2001, when tests for health insurance showed signs of kidney disease. For two years, Seid treated Richardson for high blood pressure, ignoring test results indicating kidney disease, the plaintiff alleged.

Seid eventually referred Richardson to a specialist, but by then his kidneys were already dead, defense documents said."
