Medical Malpractice

Our client in Washington, DC, who was in her 60’s, was admitted to the hospital with jaundice and suspected liver failure. During the course of her admission, the doctors performed a liver biopsy. Shortly after the biopsy, our client began to show symptoms associated with bleeding from the sight of the biopsy, which is a known risk of the procedure. We filed suit on behalf of her estate claiming that the hospital and its staff failed to recognize that the client was bleeding causing her to suffer permanent damage to her organs resulting in her death. The hospital contended that it had treated the patient properly and that our client’s liver disease made it unlikely that she would have lived in any event. After months of litigation and nearly 20 depositions, the case settled for $750,000.
