Awarded: $1,600,000

In June 2011, a 47 year old married father (Mr. Doe) of two went to his primary care physician complaining of frequent episodes of shortness of breath. The PCP ordered testing and concluded that his symptoms were "asthmatic in quality." Two days later Mr. Doe collapsed in his front yard. He passed away while en route to the hospital. An autopsy determined that the cause of death was a massive acute pulmonary embolization occluding both principal pulmonary arteries. The deceased had a prior history of two deep vein thromboses of which his doctor was aware as he treated Mr. Doe for the condition and the history was listed in the record under “past medical treatment.” The decedent’s widow brought this case forth against the defendant primary care physician. An expert hired by the Plaintiff’s attorney opined that the defendant physician should have immediately sent Mr. Doe to the emergency room for further testing, given his prior medical history. The case settled during negotiations for $1,600,000.00.
