Man suffers bedsore due to improper care

July, 2010

This client came to Zajac & Arias for an investigation of a medical problem he developed while under the care of a Philadelphia hospital. Zajac & Arias recognized that his outcome was a recognized risk of the treatment and therefore not a case, but the firm’s investigation found the man’s care was substandard in that the man had been allowed to develop a terrible bedsore. Zajac & Arias associate Dominik Rostocki lodged a claim against the hospital, and after lengthy negotiations, was able to obtain a sizeable settlement before any lawsuit was filed.
