We helped a young groom recover after losing his wife.View transcript
MR. IRA SLAVIT: We were contacted by a young man who was from down south who met his wife who lived in New York. He met her on the internet, came to New York. They fell in love. They got married. She sat for the New York State Bar examination. A few weeks later she went to the doctor. She wasn’t feeling well. This was her regular obstetrician. Wasn’t feeling well, she had a lot of complaints and risk factors that should have alerted the doctor to the fact that she had life threatening blood clots in her legs and in her lungs. Instead the doctor really had no clue as to what the problem, thought she was just worn down from the experience of taking the bar exam. Gave her really no medication, sent her home and a week later she passed away due to the blood clots. This sad story came to us. This person had no idea, the husband, whether he even had a lawsuit. We took the case. We got the records. We prepared for trail. We had our experts lined up. We started the trial and only once the trial started were we able to settle the case for a million dollars. And had the husband not come to our office or gotten the assistance of an attorney he likely would have seen no compensation for the loss of his young wife.
