$15 Million Pre-Trial Settlement for Medical Malpractice

$15 million settlement in a medical malpractice suit on behalf of an 11-year-old girl from Irvington, New Jersey. The suit alleged that the hospital and girl’s cardiologist deviated from the accepted standards of care by not following up about an appointment for a corrective surgery in early 2005, which could have treated her congenital abnormality and prevented a stroke that caused brain-damage. An Essex County, New Jersey Superior Court Judge approved the settlement on December 18, 2015. (Jeffrey E. Strauss, Essex County, New Jersey 2015).
