$535,000 Settlement – Medical Malpractice

We all depend on medical doctors to keep us healthy, prevent sickness, and improve our quality of life. Sometimes we depend on doctors to diagnose sickness as it suddenly occurs. But, when a medical doctor fails to do this, when the industry standard is to have done so, liability can arise as it did here. 

Our client’s late spouse experienced shortness of breath when walking up a flight of stairs. Having attended the same primary care physician for several years, they immediately went for a check in. Despite the shortness of breath and other health indicators that a heart attack was imminent, our client’s spouse was sent home instead of being sent to an emergency room for further evaluation. Six hours later, our client’s spouse passed away from a heart attack. 

Of course, our client, as the surviving spouse, was grief stricken and confused. Their late spouse had recently retired, had a positive health outlook, and they were enjoying their golden years happily together. 

After working with several doctors in multiple states, our attorney’s established that the treating physician’s care fell well below the normal standard, which resulted in the death of our client’s spouse. To do this, our office engaged with several expert witnesses to establish what the standard of care was, and to demonstrate how the treating physician failed to provide the standard. As a result, our attorneys quickly negotiated a $535,000 settlement for the surviving spouse.
