Russell Berkowitz

Russ Berkowitz and Erik Siegel have just settled a wrongful death medical action against a Connecticut hospital on behalf of the estate of a 66 year old client who died of a heart attack following a hospital admission for chest pain. According to Berkowitz,

“The defendants never took our client’s chest pain serious and didn’t perform any of the appropriate cardiac testing before discharging him from the hospital. In fact, our client was still complaining of chest pain upon his discharge. Our client died of a heart attack a few days following his hospital discharge. Sadly, all of this could have been prevented.”

The terms of the settlement are confidential.
