Medical malpractice attorneys fought for the plaintiffs, Melinda Schultz and the family of William Bribriesco, in an attempt to earn them much deserved compensation. Finally, in 2011, the State Appeals Board approved settlements in both cases which resolved the open lawsuits which date back to 2007. As part of the settlements, the hospital and those employed at the time denied any wrongdoing.
Two Plaintiffs Find Justice
In the first approved settlement, the State Appeals Board approved a settlement in the case of Melinda Schultz for a figure around $300,000. In that case, the plaintiff alleged that her anesthesiologist negligently administered pain medication prior to a knee operation. In the second settlement, the family of William Bribriesco was awarded $91,000 to settle the case. Mr. Bribriesco passed away following an extended term at the hospital. The plaintiff’s lawyers in that case alleged that the man died because he developed an infection which was attributable to negligent treatment during his stay at the University of Iowa Hospital. Following a complicated procedure to treat a heart aneurysm, the medical malpractice attorneys believe that negligent treatment led to the man’s demise.
