$3 Million Medical Malpractice Settlement for Defendants’ Alleged Failure to Timely and Properly Treat a Stroke

July 3, 2018

Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. has obtained a $3,000,000 settlement for their client in a case involving a hospital’s alleged failure to timely and properly treat a patient having a stroke. The case was prosecuted by attorneys Joshua L. Weisberg and Melanie J. VanOverloop. According to Mr. Weisberg, lead trial attorney for the plaintiff, the defendant hospital’s emergency personnel properly called a Code Stroke after the patient developed right sided facial drooping, weakness and slurred speech, but after calling the Code Stroke the hospital’s physicians made numerous errors and improperly delayed treatment of the patient’s stroke for over five hours, tragically resulting in the patient’s death. The defendants denied these allegations. A settlement was reached a few days before trial was set to begin.
