Our client went to the emergency room with complaints of week-long abdominal pain, sleep apnea, and other symptoms. After an examination by a doctor, the hospital admitted him for treatment. However, that was only the beginning of the story.
During his hospitalization, the medical treaters were negligent in their care, causing our client to suffer respiratory arrest and a subsequent cardiac arrest. The negligent care left him severely brain damaged, requiring around the clock care.
Our Michigan medical malpractice attorney, Tim Sulolli, proved that the hospital and treating nurse had committed medical malpractice including failure to properly monitor the patient and failure to provide a competent and qualified nurse.
Goodman Acker was able to help our patient and his family win a settlement award of $1 million. The settlement is compensation for our client’s pain and suffering, as well as present and future costs of medical care and loss of income.
When a hospital engages in improper or negligent medical care of a patient and the patient suffers harm as a result of that treatment, hospital negligence has occurred. Hospital malpractice includes negligent treatment performed by doctors, but also all other hospital employees - including nurses, pharmacists, technicians.
Often, patients who have suffered a bad result due to professional medical care believe they have suffered from medical negligence. However, medical malpractice has occurred only when medical care does not meet professional standards, resulting in harm to the patient.
