Request a Free Consultation

A young teacher went to her primary care physician complaining of shortness of breath, decreased oxygenation, and increased heart rate following an emergency room visit with similar complaints. The primary care physician failed to run a simple blood test to determine if she had a pulmonary embolism. The teacher died only days later. Ultimately, the case was settled by the doctor and a settlement was reached by Bruce Kehoe and Emily VanTyle with the Patient Compensation Fund for excess damages.
