MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASE: FAILURE TO DO ULTRASOUND ON PREGNANT WOMAN.
Our client, an Ohio woman was pregnant and went to her local hospital complaining of severe abdominal pain. The hospital knew that she was pregnant but failed to use baby monitor or do an ultrasound. The mother had internal bleeding which resulted in the death of her unborn child. A lawsuit was filed and a settlement reached quickly after. Our sincerest sympathies go out to her and her family. This tragedy could have been avoided if the hospital staff had followed established legal guidelines for the treatment of pregnant women with abdominal pain. The litigation co-counsel was Chris Mellino.
Settlement: $1,000,000; March 2015
MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASE: FAILURE TO DIAGNOSE TOXIC KIDNEY STONES.
Our client, an Ohio resident in her eighties, went in for treatment of kidney stones. It was our position that the doctor did not do the proper testing to determine if the kidney stones were toxic. When the doctor dissolved the kidney stones, the toxic remains killed our client. We co-counseled this claim with Chris Mellino which settled for $850,000 before trial. There was very little in economic damages due to our client’s advanced age. We are sorry for her family’s loss
Settlement: $850,000; January 2013
