Wrongful Death Lawsuit Results

$3.85 Million Settlement for Medical Malpractice/Wrongful Death Claim

Our law firm represented the family of the decedent, a 34-year-old man, who had been diagnosed with and tragically passed away from Bicuspid Aortic Valve Disease (BAVD), a congenital heart condition that results in the narrowing of the aortic valve.

This condition was diagnosed during a regularly scheduled physical examination that the decedent underwent. Upon learning of his diagnosis, the decedent followed up with a cardiologist, who he treated with over the course of five years. The cardiologist monitored his BAVD and noted how the decedent would eventually require aortic valve replacement surgery.

However, the cardiologist continued to delay in proceeding with this necessary, lifesaving aortic valve replacement surgery, even in light of diagnostic evidence exhibited by the decedent’s quickly narrowing aortic valve. The failure of the cardiologist to proceed with the lifesaving aortic valve replacement surgery was the direct and proximate cause of the decedent’s tragic and untimely death.

We obtained a $3,850,000.00 settlement on behalf of the decedent’s widow and his two young children.

The settlement award represents a sum to compensate the family for their husband and father’s financial support over his lifetime and to compensate his wife and children for the loss of companionship, society and guidance.
