$3.25 Million Settlement – Failure To Treat Acute Asthma Timely

When our 30-year-old client entered a Bronx hospital with shortness of breath, her Mom thought everything would be fine. Two days later she was dead. The cause of death was Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), but the hospital never told anyone she had this and she was very healthy when she entered the hospital. Had the hospital performed the standard testing, they would have discovered the timely and been able to save her. Together with co-counsel, a lawsuit was started. After depositions of the doctors and the hospital representatives, the case was settled for $3,250,000. The case was handled by Managing Partner Andrew Finkelstein with co-counsel.
