Couple Awarded $1.87M in Malpractice Suit
A couple from New York recently won a medical malpractice suit filed against a doctor whose mistake allegedly led to the man’s stroke.
The husband and wife were reportedly awarded $1.87 million in the suit.
Doctor’s Mistake Leads to Stroke
Ronald Dombroski, 52, and his wife, Nancy, filed the suit against Dr. Isidro Bulatao, claiming that he failed to diagnose Dombroski’s glucose condition when he was admitted to the Samaritan Hospital.
Dombroski suffered from a stroke while at the Samaritan, he was transported to St. Peter’s Hospital where he was immediately diagnosed with diabetes.
Couples Seeks Compensation
The Dombroski’s were seeking compensation for Ronald’s pain and suffering, along with the medical expenses that they incurred as a result of the doctor’s mistake.
Nancy also cited a loss of companionship and loss of enjoyment of life in the suit.
Jury Finds Doctor Guilty
The jury ruled that Bulatao was negligent for failing to diagnose Dombroski with diabetes or hypertension.
They called his decisions a “substantial factor” Dombroski’s injuries.
