$2,000,000 Settlement For Failure to Treat Pre-Eclampsia

Crowe & Mulvey was successful in obtaining a $2 million settlement for the husband of a young woman who died shortly after giving birth. The patient arrived at the hospital in labor with an extremely elevated blood pressure. Lab work suggested that she had pre-eclampsia and possible HELLP syndrome. Unfortunately, the providers stood by while the woman’s blood pressure continued to climb, and she suffered a fatal brain bleed.
