The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022. Are you eligible for compensation?
Sommers Schwartz attorney Matthew Turner secured a settlement in a medical malpractice lawsuit on behalf of the family of a 50-year-old man who died while in the care of a rehabilitation facility. The plaintiff claimed that the medical team failed to properly assess the patient’s abdomen and bowel sounds; failed to document his food and fluid intake; failed to investigate his complaints of severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, lethargy, and refusal to eat or drink; and failed to timely transfer the patient to the hospital, delaying a diagnoses of bowel obstruction and perforated colon. As a result of the defendants’ negligence, the patient developed sepsis, abdominal contamination, peritonitis, and other injuries that ultimately caused his wrongful death.
