Medical Malpractice

We represented a mother and father on behalf of their child, who passed away as a result of medical malpractice. The child was severely compromised and required home health care. A nurse during the course of administering home health care disconnected the child’s ventilator allowing him to be deprived of oxygen. Although oxygen levels were restored and the child was not transported to the hospital, he took a turn for the worse. After three days in the hospital, he passed away. The defendants claimed that because the child was so sick he had a shortened life expectancy. In addition, they claimed that his death was related to his underlying illness and not the desaturation event. After filing suit against the nursing agency, we were able to obtain a $275,000.00 settlement for the parents for the loss of their child.
