Medical Malpractice – Ear Infection Death Case
Our firm represented a 12-year old girl in a wrongful death/survival action involving medical malpractice. Our client’s father suffered an ear infection while he was incarcerated. The weekend before our client’s father died, he called his mother and told her that he was going to die from the horrible pain that he was experiencing in his head and he said that he was not getting the treatment that he needed. His mother called the facility and spoke with a nurse, who told her that they were treating the ear infection and that her son was just trying to get some attention. The doctor responsible for this care and treatment failed to properly treat the ear infection and our client’s father died from a brain abscess that formed as a result of his right ear infection. This case was settled confidentially.
