$1.25 Million Settlement in Toddler’s Meningitis Death

In 2002, the Bartzis family of Indiana went through the nightmare scenario that no parent wants to imagine – they endured the sudden death of their 18-month-old son, Christopher, who contracted an extremely uncommon strain of meningitis. The tragedy of the situation was compounded by the fact that the Bartzis’ family pediatrician, Dr. Azra Sherriff, initially misdiagnosed Christopher’s condition as a minor stomach ailment, delaying proper treatment. The Bartzis family was awarded $1.25 million.
