$800,000 Verdict for Wrongful Death of Nursing Home Resident

Mr. Michaels was needlessly overmedicated with morphine for chronic pain

    CLEVELAND, OH, April 28, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Attorneys Scott Perlmuter and Katie Harris obtained a jury verdict of $800,000 for the death of a nursing home resident that was carelessly overmedicated. This nursing home resident was needlessly administered morphine, despite having advanced kidney disease. Kidney disease affects the body's ability to filter out toxins, such as those found in morphine, leading to a morphine overdose and the resident being found unresponsive.

Our client's doctor denied that the client's death had anything to do with morphine. The doctor attempted to defend the case by blaming all of our clients' chronic medical issues and the fact that the client had been referred to hospice two years prior. The doctor denied responsibility and refused to participate in a settlement negotiation. The case went to trial, and our attorneys won an $800,000 jury verdict for the victim's family.

Medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in America. This verdict will help provide the justice that our client deserves and send a message to medical professionals that they must be held accountable for malpractice, especially if a wrongful death occurs.
