Wrongful Death Medical Malpractice Settlement

Written by Berkowitz

medical malpractice settlementAfter 5 weeks of trial, we have settled a wrongful death medical malpractice case on behalf of the estate of a client against a gastroenterologist and radiologist who we had sued for failing to timely diagnose our client’s colon cancer before her disease progressed to an incurable stage. Erik Siegel gets special credit for his extraordinary behind the scenes medical research and expert witness preparation which turned out to be a big reason for the insurance carrier’s change of heart in settling the case short of verdict. Terms of the settlement are confidential.
