Confidential settlement for death of a 65-year old woman from aneurysm

Our medical malpractice firm reached a $425,000 settlement in the death of a 65-year old woman from a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm, also known as an “AAA” or “triple A.”

According to the Mayo Clinic:

“An abdominal aortic aneurysm is an enlarged area in the lower part of the major vessel that supplies blood to the body (aorta). The aorta runs from the heart through the center of the chest and abdomen.

The aorta is the largest blood vessel in the body, so a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm can cause life-threatening bleeding.

Depending on the size of the aneurysm and how fast it’s growing, treatment varies from watchful waiting to emergency surgery.”

In this case, the “watchful waiting” was negligent, and the aneurysm, left untreated, became fatal.

The case was brought under Tennessee law, where damages caps apply. In Kentucky, where we have a licensed attorney, there are no such caps on damages.
