Robins Kaplan LLP Secures $2.5 Million Jury Verdict in Medical Malpractice Case
June 20, 2023
Anna Harty, a 42-year-old mom of three young kids, died on May 25, 2019, from a massive blood clot in the lungs. She went to her primary care doctor of 15 years due to fatigue and new onset shortness of breath with activity, the most common symptom of blood clots in the lungs. Her doctor failed to recognize Anna’s risk factors for developing a blood clot: age, obesity, and taking birth control pills containing estrogen. She neglected to order the D-dimer blood test, which could definitively rule out a clot. Anna died in the emergency room just four days later.
“Anna’s death was a tragedy, but we are grateful that a South Dakota jury finally delivered justice for the Harty family,” Johnson said.
