Medical Malpractice/Wrongful Death Settlement
Kevin Marciano successfully represented a Delaware County family of a young woman whose death followed soon after a visit to the emergency room with complaints of an unidentified flu-like illness. The 26-year-old patient was sent home without being treated and was not notified at any time of the outcome of blood tests taken in the ER that demonstrated a low platelet count, Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura or TTP. She was readmitted to a hospital in Philadelphia where she later lost consciousness, fell into a coma and died. She left behind a husband and three children. The medical malpractice and wrongful death claims were brought against the hospital and the emergency room doctor. A settlement of $2,500,000 was reached to compensate her three children and disabled husband. The firm continues to protect patients from medical negligence in Pennsylvania and beyond.
