$1.25 Million Settlement For Matter Involving Inadequate Care Of Patient's Hypertension
We represented a 47-year-old married father of four who was originally diagnosed with a mild stroke after demonstrating marked hypertension. The patient's blood pressure was subsequently reduced too quickly by his treating neurologist and primary care physician, causing significant hypotension and ultimately an infarction to his brain.
The patient became abulic and currently has mild impaired mental function. The patient has continued to maintain employment, albeit in a reduced capacity. Bradley Zimmerman obtained a settlement of $1,250,000 after a contentious negotiation.
