Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against Houston Rodeo

by Administrator 25. March 2011 05:34

A man recently died after falling from a roller coaster at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which has caused a wrongful death lawsuit to be filed by his family. An intense investigation is currently under way in order to determine the cause of the accident.

While some are already speculating that the man died of a heart attack or other medical problem while he was on the roller coaster, others are arguing that regardless of the cause of death, the roller coaster malfunctioned in that it did not properly restrain him. Officials are currently seeking to question anyone who was sitting around the man on the roller coaster.

If someone you love has died on the premises of another party, please contact the Phoenix wrongful death lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman, & McAnally, P.L.C., at 800-763-0964.

Jury awards family $1.38 million in wrongful death case

by Administrator 8. February 2011 03:05

An Arizona jury has awarded a family nearly $1.38 million in a wrongful death lawsuit after a patient suffered complications from a bariatric surgery.

The husband of the patient was awarded this settlement although the jury found that the jury was just as responsible for the complications as the surgeon was. The 55-year-old female patient had previously undergone surgery to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease and a hiatus hernia when she sought out a surgeon for gastric banding.

The surgery was performed at the Arizona Bariatric Center and Surgical Specialty Center in Arizona and after the surgery the woman said that she had trouble breathing and had a fever, but she was discharged to her home which was nearly 100 miles from the center. Three days later, the woman collapsed and died of post- operation sepsis. The doctor was found negligent for not seeing the post-op signs, but the woman was also held responsible for not seeking emergency medial care. 

Our thoughts are with the friends and family of the victim.
