Proctor v St. Francis Hospital et al
Malpractice settlements against several of the six named defendants arising out of a delay in diagnosis and treatment of a benign condition which resulted in legal blindness. Defense claims varied but a common theme was that Ms. Proctor would likely have lost her sight regardless of the claimed departures from the standard of care due to the rapidity of the onset of this illness. The exact amount of settlements and on whose behalf remain confidential but gross recovery well exceeded $2,000,000.Hartford Superior Court (2007).
“I had almost given up trying to sue for medical malpractice before speaking with Attorney Paul Levin because my case had already been rejected by another large firm. I was told that I did not have a viable case even though I went totally blind and it seemed that none of my Doctors tried to do anything about it while it was happening until it was too late. Because of Attorney Levin's efforts, I am financially independent and can properly take care of my Son and make sure that he gets a good education. I moved out of the inner city and relocated out of State where it is better for us both. Attorney Levin believed in my case and succeeded and though I never did get an apology from my health care providers, I at least understand what they did wrong and they paid money to compensate me for the harm caused.”
