This medical malpractice case involved failure to diagnose and treat a respiratory event, causing the death of an ICU patient.

Our client was admitted to the ICU shortly after a stroke for respiratory depression and distress, where she was placed on cardiac and oxygen saturation monitoring. Shortly after her admission, a nursing aide found her in cardiopulmonary arrest. A Code Blue was called and she was resuscitated, but she had suffered significant brain damage and died shortly thereafter.

Our investigation into the case revealed that warning signs must have preceded the arrest and that a patient hooked up to various monitors in an ICU should have received medical intervention before the arrest.

We filed suit and eventually settled the case with the hospital in the six-figures.

  • I was in a car accident. The insurance company only offered $2,500 to settle my car case. Attorney Allen Tittle took the matter to trial, and after four days, obtained a jury verdict of $75,000 which is 30 times more than what I was offered. He fights for his clients and obtains justice. I would highly recommend him.
  • Allen was professional, conscientious and well organized. Allen's research of my case produced results in which he was able to obtain a copy of a video from the grocery store and subpoenaed a witness that substantiated my claim and proved that I was in fact struck by the vehicle and injured, which he presented in the deposition. This resulted in a successful settlement in my favor
  • What I liked best about Tittle & Perlmuter was the prompt return of phone calls, always knowing when paperwork had been sent, and knowing I could call anytime and get my questions answered.
