medical malpractice lawyer

Erik Siegel has settled a wrongful death medical malpractice action on behalf the estate of a 48 year old investment analyst who committed suicide within days following counseling sessions with her psychiatrist and licensed therapist. Our client, a wife and mother of two, had long standing depression which had becoming progressively worse over the last three months of her life. During the last several days of her life, our client made troubling statements, reflective of suicidal ideation, to the defendants which were ignored. Two days following her last counseling session, our client hung herself in her attic. The terms of the settlement are confidential.
