$5 Million Wrongful Death Settlement for Montgomery County Hospital Ignoring Complaints of Severe Headache

When Jason–a young single man–arrived at a Montgomery County hospital, the Emergency Department physician ignored Jason’s complaint of a severe headache, which actually signaled the presence of a colloidal cyst that was increasing intra-cranial pressure. After twelve hours of neglect, Jason died.

Because Tim Lawn had successfully tried in NJ another client’s case related to the failure of an Emergency Room doctor to diagnose a colloidal cyst, Mr. Lawn was asked to lead the Raynes & Lawn team that in the Estate’s claims against the hospital. Mr. Lawn documented the negligence, oversaw the effective presentation of damages, and negotiated a $5,000,000 settlement even before the case was listed for trial.
