Firm Secures Compensation for Wrongful Death
Settlement: $2.45 Million
A woman who died the day after a bungled surgery had $2.45 million dollars awarded to her estate in a wrongful death medical malpractice lawsuit. The negligent doctors failed to diagnose the woman's hypoxia, a dangerous condition in which the body or a region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply, and failed to warn her of the risks of surgery. During the procedure the woman suffered anoxia (complete depletion of oxygen), respiratory failure, pulmonary insufficiency, hypertension, hypotension, cerebral edema and perfusion injury, and brain death. She died several hours later.
Firm Wins Compensation for Wrongful Death
Settlement: $1.5 Million
A woman who died after her doctor failed to diagnose and treat her meningitis had $1.5 million awarded to her estate. It was found that the doctor and medical facility responsible for her care were negligent in not only failing to diagnose her condition but also for failing adequately monitor her condition including her vital signs and hydration, failing to heed her complaints, failing to perform the necessary tests and failing to refer her for numerous consults, among other omissions. As a result the woman suffered widespread petechial, numerous hemorrhages, vomiting, fever, chills, hypertension, body aches, abdominal pain and cardiac arrest, which cumulated in her death.
