Stroke Death Related to Medical Malpractice Settles With Doctors
Posted on Aug 31, 2010
The husband of a woman who died of a stroke will receive a $5.3 million settlement in an Illinois medical malpractice case.
Attorneys representing the family said doctors failed to properly evaluate and treat the 24-year-old woman, allowing her to die of a stroke at a local hospital. The family was represented by attorneys from Hurley, McKenna & Mertz of Chicago. The couple had a son, who is now 6 years old.
