Pradat-Pumphrey Gets Defense Verdict in Wrongful Death CaseFebruary 12, 2012.
Carl Hagwood and Diane Pradat won a defense verdict for an emergency room physician in a wrongful death case. The doctor allegedly failed to refer a patient to a cardiologist when she came in with symptoms of acute bronchitis. The patient was subsequently advised by another medical practitioner to have a stress test which she declined. The patient died five days later and because there was no autopsy, the cause of death was unknown.
