Fred Schulman, Esq. and Justin Blitz, Esq. recently settled a medical malpractice/wrongful death case for $2 million. Our client was the wife of a 22 year old man with two young children who went to his doctor complaining of various symptoms including rapid weight loss and excessive thirst. The doctor didn’t realize that he was suffering from diabetic ketoacidosis and sent him home. Three days later, he was unable to breathe and went to the emergency room of a local hospital where he was admitted and his condition continued to deteriorate until he passed away two days later. Schulman Blitz, LLP sued the doctor and the hospital for medical malpractice and wrongful death. We secured a $2 million settlement for the benefit of his wife and children.
