Failure to Provide Most Up-to-Date Treatment Results in Death

Our client was a young working mother who  developed thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, a rare blood disease.  Although the disease was curable with a treatment called plasmapheresis,  her treating physician didn't keep up-to-date with treatment methods.

Instead, he used a steroid treatment that had been abandoned by the medical community years before - because it did not work.

Deprived  of the proper medical treatment, our client died while asking to be  allowed to leave the hospital to go home to her 10-year-old son.

Although  nothing could offset the tragedy of her horrible death at a young age,  we were able to assure that her son will be taken care of, thanks to the  substantial financial settlement we obtained.
