Medical Malpractice

Our client suffered from atrial fibrillation. Her electrophysiologist therefore placed her on Tikosyn, a medication used for the treatment of atrial fibrillation. The doctor ultimately stopped that treatment and then re-started it. However, when he restarted the medication, he failed to keep her in the hospital for three days, as required. Our client went home, but later that afternoon began to feel tired, light-headed, and like she was going to pass out. Shortly thereafter she suffered a cardiac arrest. She was rushed to the hospital the same day as her discharge and remained in the hospital until she, unfortunately, passed away.We filed suit on behalf of her estate in the Circuit Court for the City of Fredericksburg. We retained two highly qualified medical experts to testify that our client’s treating doctor discharged her too early and therefore caused her death. Although the doctor disputed his liability, the case settled prior to trial for $650,000.00.
