Case Results

Estate of Thomas, deceased v. Advocate Christ Hospital and Medical Center

Verdict: $1,000,000

The deceased plaintiff, age 65 and obese, was admitted for hernia surgery. The defendant hospital nursing staff did not follow procedures for pre-operative and post-operative assessment of the plaintiff decedent's for risk of venous thromboembolism (‘blood clots”) and notify physicians, which resulted in a delay in anticoagulation therapy to prevent pulmonary embolism. The plaintiff died one day after discharge home from a large saddle pulmonary embolism. The plaintiff had a history of Stage III colon cancer with the risk of recurrence at the time of death.

Mr. Lloyd has prosecuted a number of failures to diagnose cancer cases in the areas of breast, lung, prostate, and skin.
