At Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, our medical malpractice team is committed to getting our clients the justice they deserve. When you or a loved one has endured a tremendous, life-altering tragedy due to the malpractice of a hospital or physician, we do whatever it takes to get you the compensation you deserve.
We recently secured an eight-figure settlement for a 53-year-old man who was left unable to walk or talk after he became a medical malpractice victim under the negligent care of his healthcare providers.
His incident began in a South Florida hospital, where he was taken by ambulance while suffering a heart attack at home. To treat him, the hospital’s doctors performed a cardiac catheterization where they were able to open and stent his blocked artery. While recovering from that procedure, the stent failed to keep his artery open and he suffered another heart attack.
Unfortunately, the medical staff took nearly 90 minutes to return our client back to the catheterization lab. His heart stopped while waiting for treatment. He was later revived but suffered a hypoxic brain injury due to the time he spent without oxygen.
Our client and his family entrusted the hospital with his livelihood, but the neglect he received from the medical staff left him unable to walk or talk, and he will require 24-hour nursing care for the rest of his life.
Following an extensive investigation, our team recovered an eight-figure settlement for our client and his family.
