Medical Malpractice settlement reached against hospital

Medical Malpractice paper and gavel

Russ Berkowitz has just settled a medical malpractice wrongful death case against a hospital on behalf of the estate of a 54 year old client who died in the emergency department as a result of the hospital’s 9 hour delay in diagnosing and treating his aortic dissection. According to Berkowitz, “my client’s family has lost an amazing husband, father, friend, and mentor as a result of his untimely death. Hopefully, while he will never be forgotten by those who loved him, this result will allow his family to have some meaningful closure as they continue to deal with their grief.” The terms of the settlement are confidential.
