Medical Malpractice – What You Need to Know
Yesterday, we posted a news article on this blog about a Billings woman and her four children who were awarded $1.7 million verdict for a medical malpractice claim on behalf of her late husband. The deceased in this case was only 42 years old at the time of his death. The family brought a claim seeking damages since the physician misdiagnosed the pain the decedent was suffering as coming from a torn muscle, rather than from a known leaky valve in his heart. As the attorney for this family stated “…It doesn’t bring him back…” There is a young widow left behind with four children who have no father. This lawsuit and the verdict have taken one burden off of this young woman. She has one less thing to worry about. She will now have enough money to provide a home for her children, put food on the table and send them to college. I am sure that she would give every penny back to the insurance company covering the doctor and hospital if she could have her husband back. But it doesn’t work that way. Not all medical malpractice victims die. Some live on with constant pain or scarring. Some lose a body part. It is always tragic. Lives are changed forever by human error.
