Confidential Settlement: Georgia Medical Malpractice

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

A woman who had leg fracture and casting developed DVT (deep vein thrombosis). The woman complained of pain and swelling in the area. Due to inactivity and fracture, she was at increased risk for the development of DVT. We claimed that the physician should have performed some testing such as Doppler ultrasound to determine if the woman had developed a clot. She suffered respiratory arrest and almost died when the clot broke loose and traveled to her lungs. The patient suffered emotionally as the result of literally "going to death's door."

She also experienced memory and other cognitive problems as the result of oxygen deprivation that had occurred. One of the key factors that resulted in a confidential settlement was the fact that the emergency room physician testified that the possibility of DVT should have been investigated earlier based on the patient's symptoms. Although the emergency room physician was not a retained expert for our client, on cross-examination he was unable to avoid criticizing the level of care provided by the defendant. This testimony was in great part responsible for our being able to resolve this case in a traditionally conservative rural venue, i.e., Habersham County.
