Derryberry Zips Wade Lawhorn, PLLC Announces the Settlement of a Wrongful Death Case in May, 2013
June 2nd, 2013 by dzwlaw
Type of Case: Wrongful Death- Hospital Medical Negligence-Malpractice
A 28 year old young lady died as a result of the negligence of a hospital and its employees, including the nurses and hospital administrators. We were able to obtain a substantial confidential settlement for the young lady‚Äôs 4 year old son and her parents. The young lady suffocated to death because the nurses and hospital administrators ignored the doctor‚Äôs orders that a sitter be at her bedside at all times. Instead, she was left alone, rolled onto her stomach and was unable to turn back over onto her back. A hospital employee found the young lady lying face down and non-responsive. Autopsy results confirmed that she suffocated to death, an event which would not have occurred if the doctor‚Äôs orders had been followed by the nurses and hospital administrators.
We will continue to serve our clients and pursue those individuals and businesses that needlessly endanger all members of the community by violating basic safety rules that are designed to prevent harm to all members of the community.
