Our client was a 41 year-old-man with a history of diverticulitis. He complained of stomach pains and was treated off and on at hospitals with pain management. Eventually, he has to be taken to the ER by ambulance. Staff at a Pittsburgh area hospital emergency room ordered and then inexplicably cancelled a CT scan. His stomach perforated and he died as a result. We filed the case in the Pittsburgh area and settled on the verge of trial for nearly ½ million dollars.
