Medical Malpractice – $1‚650‚000

$1.65 Million

Burying a child‚ at any age‚ is an unimaginable tragedy for a mother. For our client‚ that terrible event played out over many months‚ while her son was supposedly under the care of experienced medical doctors. The high doses of prescription medications our client’s son received from these doctors to manage his pain had lethal consequences and directly caused his untimely death. Physicians continued to prescribe the deadly cocktail of pills even as our client’s son began to show signs of organ failure and pharmaceutical poisoning.

Having just lost her son‚ a despondent mother turned to our firm to help hold those responsible for his death accountable.

Our attorneys delved into the professional histories of the medical doctors at the center of this wrongful death case. What they found read like a laundry list of suspect practices from a tendency to operate as ‘cash only’ healthcare providers to outright failures to investigate patient medical histories. These doctors kept minimal paper trails and disregarded patient safety at nearly every turn as illustrated in the gross negligence leading up to the death of our client’s son.

Pursuit of those responsible wasn’t limited to the doctors prescribing the medication‚ but also included the pharmacies dispensing the pills. Our personal injury attorneys discovered a pattern of filling prescriptions for narcotics without any regard to the frequency of visits or the size of prescriptions filled. The pharmacies functioned as little more than a pill dispensaries disregarding safety protocols that could’ve prevented this man from dying before the age of 40.

At trial‚ firm partner Richard Hollawell was up against six high-powered attorneys for the defense. Armed with a well thought out strategy to prove negligence‚ he was able to persuade the jury of the doctors’ recklessness. Minutes before the jury read a verdict‚ we reached a settlement with the defendants obtaining $1.65 million. The guarantee provided by the settlement ensured compensation for our client for her grievous loss. The wrongful death settlement also served as a deterrent for other medical doctors and healthcare providers that may engage in such outrageous behavior in the future.
