Failure to diagnose kidney failure
Our client was a 73-year-old grandmother who went to a local hospital complaining of vomiting, nausea and diarrhea. In the emergency room, blood tests were run but the results, which showed our client to be in renal failure, were not timely acted upon. As a result, our client went into cardiac arrest, suffered brain damage and ultimately died. We were able to obtain the appropriate settlement to compensate her adult children, who resided in Nassau County, for their untimely loss.
