$3 Million Settlement - NY Medical Malpractice/Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death of Mother of Four

Just prior to jury selection, Jason Rubin reached a $3 million settlement in a case arising out of the death of a 35 year old, unmarried mother of four.

Decedent presented to the emergency room of defendant hospital with complaints of leg pain and difficulty breathing. She was discharged home and suddenly collapsed and died the next day. An autopsy revealed the cause of death to be a pulmonary embolism as a result of a deep vein thrombosis in her leg.

The emergency room chart was lost by the hospital, but Jason was able to piece together what occurred at the hospital by interviewing family members and obtaining billing records and hospital logs which indicated that decedent made complaints of pain in a limb. We claimed that she should have underwent an ultrasound of the leg, which would have revealed the deep vein thrombosis. Anticoagulation and other treatment could have then been initiated, which would have avoided her death.
