A man settled his medical malpractice claim against the Jacksonville Naval Hospital after its employees failed to diagnose that he was suffering from viral encephalitis.
The man went to the Mayport clinic complaining of a severe headache and nausea. He was discharged without viral encephalitis being diagnosed. As a result, he had to have emergency surgery to remove part of his brain, leaving him with a brain injury. The medical negligence case settled for $950,000.00.
