Medical Malpractice - Failure to Recognize Pulmonary Embolus - Wrongful Death
Our client, a 32-year-old mother of three children, presented to her treating physician with signs and symptoms of a pulmonary embolism. Both visits were within a few days apart. On both occasions, the doctor sent her home without recognizing the urgency her condition. This lack of recognition or negligence by the doctor resulted in the sudden death of our client a short time thereafter. A confidential settlement was made for the physician’s and medical clinic’s full policy limits of insurance on behalf of the client.
