- Our office represented a young child who suffered catastrophic neurological injury at a local hospital. The infant, who was suffering from severe dehydration, caused by vomiting and diarrhea, was admitted to a local hospital for correction of his condition via fluid administration. However, in the emergency department, a resident physician, one year out of medical school, admitted the infant to the floor, not the intensive care unit. On the floor, nurses failed to keep up with the child's fluid losses, resulting in him becoming even more severely dehydrated. Eventually, the infant suffered multiple strokes, all caused by severe and prolonged dehydration. A consulting neurosurgeon determined the child suffered catastrophic brain damage from dehydration. Our firm obtained $7,500,000.00 for the child, which will provide his needs for the remainder of his life. , 2021

While in the nursing home, she developed a clot in an artery of her leg that caused her foot and lower leg to become necrotic and gangrenous. Staff at the nursing home ignored her cries for help for more than two months, resulting in the amputation of her leg just below the knee, severe infection, and death. We obtained a $1,750,000.00 settlement for our client., 2017
- Our client's wife was taken to a Northern California Hospital with complaints of altered mental status. Lab values revealed she was suffering from hyponatremia, low sodium levels in her blood. Rather than properly correct the hyponatremia, several physicians overcorrected her sodium levels, causing osmotic demyelination syndrome, rendering our client permanently disabled.
