Infection Case Results

Recovery in excess of $1 million A young woman from Greensburg, Westmoreland County, died from a severe blood infection known as Clostridium difficile, which developed shortly after the delivery of her second child. The mother had returned to her obstetrician's office a few days after the delivery with various complaints indicating that she may have a uterine infection, but the doctor delayed in putting her in the hospital and giving her antibiotics. As a result, by the time she presented to the emergency room, she was near death and no treatment could save her. We filed the claim against the doctor for not hospitalizing the patient and providing necessary antibiotic treatment. We received a recovery in excess of $1 million for the husband and surviving children of this young woman.

Million-dollar settlement — A middle-aged housewife from Beaver County died as a result of a severe blood infection (sepsis), which developed after she underwent surgery to remove a kidney stone. We filed a medical malpractice claim against the surgeon on the ground that he failed to check the patient's urine before doing the kidney stone removal, and had he checked the urine, he would have discovered that the patient already had a urinary tract infection when she entered the hospital. Therefore, the surgery should have either been canceled or she should have been put on antibiotics before going to the operating room. We obtained a million-dollar settlement on behalf of her widowed husband.
