This weekend I am in a contemplative mood. I was thinking about one of the medical malpractice cases I am handling. As a Fort Worth Medical Malpractice Attorney and licensed medical doctor, I receive up to 100 telephone calls and email inquiries per month. After talking and carefully screening all of these possible inquiries, I end up selecting only 4-5 cases per year to litigate and to take to the next level.
This case concerns a middle aged woman who comes into a major North Texas hospital for treatment of a fractured hip. She is appropriately evaluated and scheduled for hip replacement under spinal anesthesia.
Then tragedy strikes, there is an accident during the administration of the anesthesia. My client stops breathing and has full cardiac arrest while in the OR. These events were not immediately recognized or treated by the attending anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist who were responsible for the care of the patient.
After much delay, the patient was resuscitated, but she had developed severe irreversible anoxic brain damage from the lack of oxygen.
The client lingered on in a profound vegetative state for 3 months and then ultimately died.
You would guess that the doctors and nurses would do the right thing and accept liability in this tragic medical malpractice case. You guessed right…they deny liability and we have a fight on our hands.
I have a very good friend, Spencer Aronfeld, Aronfeld Law Firm in Miami Florida who also handles wrongful death and catastrophic personal injury cases. I told him about this case…he was shocked and dismayed. Then he regaled me with similar cases of his own.
Folks every day is a battle to get people justice in this world, please note we are doing it street by street, house by house and city by city. The work for justice never ends and Injustice never sleeps.
