Failure to Provide Most Up-to-Date Treatment Results in Death

Our client was a young working mother who developed thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, a rare blood disease. Although the disease was curable with a treatment called plasmapheresis, her treating physician didn't keep up-to-date with treatment methods.

Instead, he used a steroid treatment that had been abandoned by the medical community years before - because it did not work.

Deprived of the proper medical treatment, our client died while asking to be allowed to leave the hospital to go home to her 10-year-old son.

Although nothing could offset the tragedy of her horrible death at a young age, we were able to assure that her son will be taken care of, thanks to the substantial financial settlement we obtained.
