Settlements in Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

In a confidential case, a patient suffered extreme burns and cumulative medical costs after a Nurse failed to administer chemotherapy in accordance with hospital policy. The patient entered the hospital that day to receive his dose of chemotherapy. All was going according to policy until the patient complained of a burning sensation at the chemotherapy administration site. The nurse checked his site but did not find anything to indicate a problem. After the nurse had left her shift, another nurse discovered fluid building up under the skin, and it was later confirmed that the patient had suffered from an extravasation.

The consequences were dire. The patient ended up with severe burns that required extensive medical care including skin graphing. It was later discovered that the hospital had a policy that required nurses to stop chemotherapy if the patient complains of pain. The parties then determined that a settlement would be the best option. When a case goes to trial, it can take months to years to resolve, and that involves abhorrent legal fees.

In over 25 years of practice on the defense side of malpractice cases, Jeff Mitchell is the attorney I fear most. He takes very good cases. Jeff has the medicine and the applicable literature down cold. He is without a doubt the best cross-examiner I have ever seen. I have paid his clients a lot of money over the years.
