Medical malpractice attorneys in Chicago recently struck a settlement on behalf of a local family who had suddenly lost their father and husband. Abraham Pinarkyil passed away at the age of forty five following a surgery to remove a benign tumor from his heart. The Illinois medical malpractice attorneys, led by Charles Hornewer, believe that the $3.8 million settlement will help the family following this tragic event. In 2007, Pinarkyil left behind a widow, two daughters, and a son who had not yet been born at the time of his father’s death.
Doctors Fail to Recognize Problem and Prescribe Proper Treatment
Following the initial heart surgery, Pinarkyil began experiencing some cardiac abnormalities in addition to displaying some signs of shock. Doctors treated him with additional fluids and medications but there was no significant improvement in his condition. Over the following two days, Pinarkyil’s cardiac output was dramatically reduced. Pinarkyil’s initial surgery was on June 1st, 2007, by June 4th he was dead. The death occurred because doctors failed to recognize that the shock and dramatic health issues seen after surgery could be directly linked to the man’s heart. We believe that if the proper devices would have been used, such as an intra-aortic balloon pump, Pinarkyil would not have had organ failure. As Mr. Pinarkyil lost his life, it is hard not to feel the most sympathy for his widow and three young children. Pinarkyil’s medical malpractice attorney stated, “our hope is that this compensation will help offset the financial impact of his loss to his widow and daughters, as well as the son who will grow up without ever having met his father.”
