A $4 million settlement was reached in a medical malpractice case for the family of a 38 year old man who died after being admitted to the hospital. The patient was admitted to the hospital for significant problems that developed after surgery. Once admitted to the hospital, the patient required continual care and observation by the hospital staff. Despite a significant deterioration of his condition, the patient was never examined by a doctor for several hours and died of a severe brain injury. While the family sustained a tremendous loss, the settlement will ensure that they are financially secure into the future.
