Medical Malpractice

WRSH partners Kathleen Kettles and Jason Rubin handled a case involving a 48-year-old woman who presented to urgent care with a fever, a new heart murmur, and lab abnormalities; which suggested infection, early sepsis, and the potential for bacterial endocarditis because of the new murmur. She was diagnosed with gastroenteritis and sent home after receiving some IV fluids.

Ten days later she collapsed, was hospitalized, and suffered a stroke due to emboli from her infected heart valve. Though she was on disability due to a work-related accident prior to the malpractice filing, our client became wheelchair-bound with mild cognitive changes because of this misdiagnosis.

Jason Rubin was able to settle the case for $2 million while on trial.
