Hodes Milman partner Jeffrey Milman successfully negotiated a $180,000 settlement for the family of a recovering cancer patient who died after a physician reinserted a chest tube incorrectly. The patient, diagnosed with Stage 2 lung cancer, had undergone a successful lobectomy and was doing well post-surgery. In preparation for her discharge, the woman moved abruptly, causing a chest tube to dislodge. The attending physician reinserted the chest tube incorrectly causing the patient’s immediate demise.
