LIPSITZ & PONTERIO has obtained a cash settlement, in excess of 2 million dollars, for the family of a 42-year-old woman who passed away due to her physician’s negligence.
Our client was a teacher, mother, and the wife of her high school sweetheart. In 2004 she suffered a heart attack which required that a pump be inserted through her groin to assist her heart. Doctors also gave her blood thinners to prevent any blood clots from forming. Her heart eventually stabilized, but the doctor’s failure to discontinue using blood thinners before removing the pump caused our client to bleed to death.
The attorneys at LIPSITZ & PONTERIO were privileged to represent this family in their lawsuit and we will continue to represent victims of medical malpractice.
