VA Hospital Medical Malpractice Wrongful Death Settlement

This medical malpractice veterans’ administration claim was settled prior to a lawsuit being filed for a confidential amount.  Our client went to the VA hospital with a history of a surgically corrected aortic aneurysm and symptoms consistent with a new dissection.  As a result of the delay in diagnosing his acute, life-threatening condition, the patient died prior to receiving the necessary emergency surgery.  The federal tort claim was filed by Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. by the surviving family members.
