72-Year-Old Man Dies of Kidney Failure Due To Medical Negligence; Settled for $225,000
A 72-year-old man underwent a procedure to correct a weak artery, but the object put in place to strengthen the artery was set at the wrong location, causing blood to stop flowing into his kidneys. Even though an anesthesiologist pointed out the error a couple hours after the procedure, the hospital refused to correct it, and the man was placed on dialysis. He later died of kidney failure. Jeffrey A. Milman and Lee Weiss of Hodes Milman Liebeck represented the plaintiff, resulting in a $225,000 settlement.
