Jane Doe v. John Doe ER Physician, Jane Doe General Practitioner and Hospital

Our client was a healthy 60-year old marginal diabetic, being controlled by an anti-hyperglycemic.  In response to a telephone complaint of stomach issues, her doctor converted her to a hypoglycemic medication at four times the normal, recommended dosage.  She experienced a hypoglycemic episode with loss of consciousness in the shower and was taken to the Emergency Room.  After evaluation, she was sent home, despite the lingering impact of the 24-hour half-life of the hypoglycemic medication.  That evening she fell into a coma from which she never awakened.  After insisting on confidentiality, on the eve of trial, the hospital and physicians paid the family a significant settlement.
