Cleveland Medical Malpractice Attorney Obtains Settlement in Wrongful Death Case
Date:2/23/2010

term Plavix® and Aspirin - two powerful anti-blood clot medications. As stated in the case, when he went for an elective screening colonoscopy, however, the gastroenterologist assured attorney DiCello's clients that temporarily stopping the medications, to reduce the risk of bleeding if a large polyp was encountered and removed during the procedure, was safe.

The Gastroenterologist Offered No Other Alternatives

Unfortunately, as stated in court documents, the gastroenterologist offered no other alternatives - procedures that could have effectively screened for colon cancer without the need to stop any medications. Furthermore, the procedure ultimately performed by the gastroenterologist carried a very low risk of bleeding and thus, did not require the patient to discontinue his Plavix® and Aspirin before or after the colonoscopy. Instead of instructing him to immediately resume his medications, however, Mr. DiCello's client was instructed to remain off of his anti-blood clot drugs for an additional two days, during which he died.

The widow, retired from employment at a local school, has been devastated, both emotionally and financially, by the sudden death of her husband. "This was a very close and loving married couple. Furthermore, the wife was totally dependent on her husband for financial support," DiCello said. 'Plavix® and Aspirin are widely prescribed drugs that are critical to preventing the formation of deadly blood clots in the heart. Careful consideration, including consultation with prescribing doctors, must be undertaken before instructing a patient to stop taking these powerful medications.' The settlement will ensure attorney DiCello's client a measure of financial stability.
