Victims of medical malpractice call for California law to be changed

For 2-year-old Steven Olsen, a hike in the woods and a fall on a stick would change his life forever.

“They (the doctors) thought, ‘Oh, he has meningitis,’” said Steven’s mother, Kathy Olsen.

However, that was not the case. Steven was suffering from an infection from the fall. It spread from his hand to his brain quickly. Doctors ran more tests and determined he had bacterial meningitis. They pumped him full of steroids and other medicines and sent him home.
