$4 Million to Victim’s Family: Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death Claim Settled by Mark McNabola
Trial Attorney: Mark McNabola
Settlement Amount: $4 million
Attorney’s Mark McNabola and Ruth Degnan of the McNabola Law Group successfully settled a wrongful death claim, resulting in a $4 million settlement to the deceased man’s family.
A 33-year-old father of twins died due to a delay in treatment for his cardiac genetic disorder. The young father suffered from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy – a genetic condition that thickens the walls of the heart and makes it hard for the heart to pump blood. Despite hospital staff knowing of his condition, his physicians failed to treat it promptly by unnecessarily waiting to consult a cardiac surgeon.
Failure to Provide Timely Cardiac Treatment Led to Death of 33-Year-Old Father
Given the man’s symptoms and cardiac imaging results, his treating physician should have immediately consulted a surgeon, who would have inserted a pacemaker into the man’s heart. This treatment would have avoided his untimely death. Ultimately, this delay in treatment allowed the man to go into sudden cardiac arrest and tragically die. The man left behind his two teenage daughters and his extended family.
Family Able to Avoid Years of Litigation with Successful Settlement
Attorneys of the McNabola Law Group represented the decedent’s family. Recognizing the emotional toll and financial burden a trial can have on families, Attorney Mark McNabola presented evidence, expert testimony, and skillfully negotiated a fair and just pre-suit settlement. The medical insurance provider ultimately agreed to offer the estate $4 million in compensation. With this settlement, Mark McNabola and the attorneys at the McNabola Law Group were able to secure a substantial settlement for the victim’s family without resorting to protracted litigation, sparing the victim’s family years of legal proceedings. Mark McNabola and the McNabola Law Group were proud to provide a favorable result and justice for the family.
