Medical Malpractice / DVT

Result: $250,000

In this medical negligence case a saphenous vein thrombus that developed in our client’s body following a hernia repair was allowed to propagate into a deep vein thrombosis (DVT), destroying the venous valves in his left leg, leaving him with chronic venous valvular insufficiency and a lifetime disability. Fortunately, he avoided death due to a pulmonary embolism, but he is left with a lifetime of impaired use of his leg, discomfort and fear. He will require a lifetime of medical care and continuous surveillance of his circulatory system.
