$2.15 Million resolution for Elderly Man in suburban Medical Malpractice Case
Arthur, a 68-year-old man, was admitted to a Chicago Suburban Hospital in 2013 for prostate surgery. After his surgery, Arthur’s nurses and one of his surgeons negligently failed to diagnose an arterial blood clot in his left leg. Once his doctor suspected he was suffering from a blood clot, the hospital radiology department did not complete ultrasound testing in a timely manner. Emergency surgery was performed to restore proper blood flow, but his leg had to be amputated below the knee two weeks later.
Mr. Flowers and Mr. Brown are continuing to litigate negligence claims against another defendant physician who failed to order a consultation by a vascular surgeon and failed to make sure the ultrasound was done on an emergent basis. They expect this claim to proceed to trial later this fall.
