$10 Million Medical Malpractice Settlement to the estate of a deceased husband and father who died as a result of the defendants’ failure to surgically treat mitral valve prolapse

Sep 05 2017

The patient, a husband and father, presented to a local university hospital and their cardiologists for a work-up and treatment of his mitral valve prolapse. In spite of the significant nature of the mitral valve prolapse, it was alleged, the defendant cardiologists elected not to refer the patient to cardiac surgery for evaluation and surgical treatment which resulted in the patient’s sudden cardiac death as a result of his known mitral valve prolapse.
