Russ Berkowitz and Kelly Ferraro have been awarded a medical malpractice wrongful death settlement

Kelly-Ferraro

Russ Berkowitz and Kelly Ferraro have been awarded a medical malpractice wrongful death settlement against a Connecticut hospital on behalf of a client who died as a result of the hospital’s negligence in failing to diagnose that our client had developed a recurring intestinal obstruction following a small bowel procedure. Unfortunately, when our client began repeatedly vomiting after progressing to a fiber diet during his hospital stay, said hospital’s medical providers failed to diagnose that our client’s vomiting was related to his obstruction. Ultimately, our client began aspirating his vomit which blocked his airway. Sadly, our client developed aspiration pneumonia, went into cardiac arrest and died shortly thereafter.
The terms of the settlement are confidential.
