$3 Million Dollar Award for the Death of an Unmarried 29-year-old

On July 20, 2014, the decedent presented to a local area hospital for the reversal of her stoma. In the immediate postoperative period, she began having some non-specific signs of an infection. A CT Scan without Contrast was performed and revealed no acute significant findings. The decedent continued to worsen and a CT Scan with Contrast was never performed. The Plaintiff ultimately died of an anastomotic leak, which should have been diagnosed and treated earlier. Plaintiff left one minor child as a decedent. Nicholas T. Motherway and Bradley Z. Schulman represented the plaintiff.
