Freidin Brown, P.A. is pleased to announce that our legal team was recently successful in securing a $5.5 million settlement on behalf of a client who suffered devastating injuries as a result of medical malpractice in New Port Richey, Florida.
The case involved our client, who was pregnant at time, visiting the emergency room of a local hospital for a high fever and facial swelling. Despite our client’s visible symptoms and complaints, emergency room doctors and nurses discharged her from the hospital without determining the underlying cause of her swelling and whether she had an infection.
As a result of hospital staff’s failure to properly evaluate our client and prematurely discharging her, our client suffered debilitating brain damage, which resulted in permanent impairment.
When handling the case, our attorneys worked with top medical experts in various field to clearly and convincingly show that emergency room doctors and nurses provided substandard care when they failed to to properly evaluate our client, and that she should have never been discharged without first determining if she had an infection or what was causing her symptoms.
Following our thorough investigation and work to build an effective claim, our legal team was able to reach a settlement against the hospital and doctors for $5.5 million. This compensation is essential to not only covering the damages our client incurred as a result of the attending medical staff’s negligence, but also for her future medical needs. The settlement will also provide recompense for our client’s children, who suffered tremendous emotional injuries and the loss of support of their mother.
Our Miami medical malpractice attorneys are thankful to have recovered the compensation our client rightfully deserved, and to have played a role in ensuring that the negligent hospital and health care providers were held accountable for failing to uphold their legal duty of providing an acceptable standard of care. By providing a voice for our client and her family, we not only ensure that she is justly compensated, but also that steps are taken by the hospital to prevent similar tragedies from affecting others in the future.
