$690,000 Settlement for Failure to Properly Treat Hypertension

Mr. Fried represented a 50-year-old man with hypertension (high blood pressure). The defendant internal medicine doctor failed to treat our client accordingly to control his blood pressure but continued to provide him essentially the same medicine for years, which was ineffective. The defendant doctor claimed our client was non-compliant and failed to take his medication regularly, but nevertheless, the doctor continued to refill our client’s medication. Ultimately our client had a significant stroke, and has been unable to return to work. Despite numerous liability issues, Mr. Fried was able to obtain a $690,000 settlement on this claim.
