Jackson v. Dr. John Doe
$175,000|Medical Malpractice
This was a very tragic dental malpractice case. Ms. Jackson's mother, age 55, visited Dr. John Doe to have 10 teeth removed. At the time, she was suffering from end state liver disease and did not have long to live. She suffered from coagulopathy which meant that her blood did not clot. The dentist did not take a history from Ms. Jackson's mother and failed to discover that her blood did not clot properly. The dentist proceeded to extract her teeth and sent her home. Ultimately, Ms. Jackson's mother bled to death. We filed suit alleging that the dentist negligently failed to take a history and that this negligence was the proximate cause of her death. We filed suit on behalf of Ms. Jackson. This case settled before trial for $175,000.
