FRAMINGHAM – A jury has awarded $11.5 million to a Framingham family, who filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a radiologist at Newton-Wellesley Hospital.
The jury found the radiologist was negligent in treating Anna Coelho, now 11, of Framingham, a decade ago.
The jury came back with a verdict yesterday after a two-and-a-half-week trial in Middlesex Superior Court.
In 2009, Coelho went into cardiac arrest and suffered a permanent brain injury after receiving IV fluids in the hospital’s emergency room..
The family claimed an enlarged heart was not diagnosed by radiologist Dr. William Denison, after viewing an x-ray.
