Deren Doe v. Hartford Area Hospital (2018)-$700,000 settlement
This case demonstrates what happens sometimes to Connecticut residents who wind up relying on an overtaxed hospital system for their primary health care. Our 35-year-old client went to a Hartford area hospital regarding chief complaints of back pain, gait imbalance, , numbness in extremities, and other issues suggesting a neurological compromise. , Over a period of months the symptoms did not alleviate. Each visit, his medical providers provided assurance and referrals to specialists that never resulted in established appointments due to both patient backlog and hospital system procedures that were not well synced and resulted in months of delays in being seen. As a result of the Hartford area hospital's continuous negligence in the medical care and treatment of the patient's surgery was delayed and his ability to regain full function had been completely compromised. His wife has also suffered damages, loss of consortium, services affection, and spousal intimacies. After extensive multi year litigation during which time the Defendant hospital mounted a vigorous defense the case settled weeks before Trial for $700,000 ( Hartford Superior Court-2018).
