we have successfuly represented injured patientS and their families in the following cases:
Failure to treat bowel perforation
We represented the family of a man who suffered a sudden onset of excruciating abdominal pain. He was rushed to the emergency room, where he languished before eventually succumbing to septic shock while awaiting treatment. With the help of qualified medical experts, we determined there were delays in treatment that fell below the standard of care.
Delayed treatment of stroke
We represented the family of a man who suffered an ischemic stroke and later died because his treating doctors failed to promptly examine him and administer the clot-buster drug, Tissue Plasminogen Activator (TPA), even though he arrived at the hospital within the time window for administering this medication.
An expecting mother approaching her due date went to her OB/GYN for a checkup. She was sent to the ER and an ultrasound was performed. The ultrasound images revealed the existence of a partial placental abruption, an ominous finding which constituted a medical emergency requiring immediate treatment. However, when the radiologist dictated his report of the ultrasound study, he neglected to mention the abruption.
