$2.5 Million Settlement in Medical Malpractice Action Against Hospital and Physicians For Failing To Timely Diagnose and Treat Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura

The plaintiff was an adult woman who developed thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura or TTP. She went to the hospital emergency department and was subsequently admitted to the floor. Due to a series of delays and miscommunications the plaintiff never received any treatment for the condition for approximately 12 hours. As a result she died leaving a husband and multiple survivors. The plaintiff alleged the hospital and multiple treating physicians were negligent for failing to timely diagnose and treat the TTP. The defense denied any negligence and further argued the TTP was not treatable. The case settled for $2.5 million prior to trial.
