Recent Laser Lead Extraction Lawsuit
After a two-week trial, an Illinois jury handed down a unanimous verdict recently finding a hospital guilty of medial malpractice. The lawsuit was filed after a 64-year-old man went through a laser extraction program to remove a pacemaker and later died in a hospital Cath Lab where the heart and blood vessels were perforated by the laser. The complaint alleged that the patient was the victim of a poorly prepared staff that not only perforated his heart but also was unable to respond to the injury in a timely manner. The family will now receive over $2 million as compensation for their loss.
