$6,000,000 Medical Malpractice Verdict in Dekalb County Court

A Dekalb County court awarded $6 million in a medical malpractice case, following five days of trial.  The malpractice at issue was a missed bowel blockage that was missed by two different doctors, an ER doctor and a hospitalist.  The client was an approximately 70 year old woman who died of sepsis when her bowel ruptured while she was in the hospital, after the doctors failed to order a CT scan that would have revealed the blockage.
