March – An Alabama jury awards 3 Million in a wrongful death law suit, to the surviving family members of a man who bled to death following his ulcer surgery.

The family members of Laboyish Catlin, 37, filed a medical malpractice lawsuit after Catlin died days after having surgery on his ulcer at Baptist Princeton Hospital in January of 2006.

The Prosecutors claimed that Catlin bled to death as a result of negligent medical care performed by the hospital’s medical staff. Mr. Catlin received multiple blood transfusions following the surgery; however, doctor’s failed to get the bleeding under control and sent the man home anyway, where he subsequently died. The untimely death occurred as a direct result of the after surgery bleeding which the medical team failed to get a handle on before they sent the victim home to recover. If your loved one has died as a result of the careless or negligent acts of another, contact a Mobile personal injury attorney right away for further assistance in filing a personal injury claim.

The defense argued that factors such as over-the-counter prescription medication, alcohol use and anemia contributed to Catlin’s death; however upon examining all of the evidence, the jury voted in favor of the decedent’s surviving family members, awarding them 3 million in damages.
