Six-Figure Settlement in Medical Malpractice/Wrongful Death Case

This case involved improper prescription of a beta blocker in a patient with asthma that caused bronchospasm and death.

A patient reported to the emergency department with complaints of chest pain and shortness breath. The patient, a known asthmatic, was prescribed a contraindicated medication for asthmatic patients. This, in turn, caused the patient to suffer a bronchospasm, which prevented the patient from breathing. Due to the fact that the air supply of the patient was cut off for an extended period of time, she suffered an anoxic brain injury, which eventually took her life.

The emergency room malpractice lawyers at Tittle & Perlmuter investigated the medical negligence and filed a lawsuit. Eventually, the emergency room doctor agreed to mediate the case where a mid to high six-figure settlement was reached.
