Corboy & Demetrio Obtains $1M in Death of 75-year-old Patient for Failure to Diagnose Aneurysm

04.18.2016

Corboy & Demetrio obtained a $1 million settlement for the wrongful death of a 75-year-old Illinois woman who died after a doctor failed to diagnose her with a ruptured aortic aneurysm.

The plaintiff was admitted to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital’s emergency room on January 10, 2012 with acute onset of severe sharp chest pain and pain to the back of her head. She was worked up for an acute coronary syndrome and was discharged from the hospital the following day after testing negative for ischemia from a nuclear stress test.  The plaintiff died on January 12, 2012 as a result of a ruptured aortic aneurysm.   

The wrongful death lawsuit alleged that the attending physician at Lutheran General failed to diagnose and treat an aortic aneurysm.

The estate of the decedent was represented by Corboy & Demetrio Partner Susan Schwartz.  The case settled on April 18, 2016.
