In October 2016, Simmons Hanly Conroy settled a case involving an improper blood transfusion to a patient in a St. Louis-area hospital for $2 million.
The firm worked diligently with preeminent expert doctors to determine the extent of the patient’s injuries. Attorneys negotiated with the hospital’s lawyers for a significant settlement before filing a lawsuit but also tried to find out what went wrong and why.
The hospital had already completed an investigation and developed a plan to improve the safety of blood transfusions that should reduce the chance of this happening again.
The firm accomplished two main goals: it secured fair-money fast for the client and is satisfied there is a plan that should make blood transfusions safer at this St Louis hospital.
Filing a lawsuit through the legal system can motivate companies to re-evaluate their practices and make much needed improvements. In this case, it was important to the client and firm attorneys that no one else suffer a similar injury at the hospital. Through the lawsuit, the team independently verified the hospital had investigated and developed a plan to reduce the chance of an improper blood transfusion happening again, ensuring the safety of blood transfusion patients going forward.
