Carol Forte obtained a $1 million settlement for a woman who was under the care of a physician for high blood pressure. Our client was receiving regular check ups and prescriptions, but her doctors failed to test her blood for several years, and therefore missed evidence of and failed to treat early kidney disease, resulting in more extensive kidney damage. Our client ultimately required a kidney transplant, which she received.
