Nothing in life is more heartbreaking than the death of a child—especially when that death could have been prevented. This very sad story unfolded recently at a Chicago hospital when the parents of a 7-year-old visited the emergency room after their son was complaining of abdominal pain and vomiting. It was later determined that the pain and vomiting were the result of a twisting of his intestines.
Unfortunately, the emergency room staff never considered that his intestines were twisted. This condition went undiagnosed for many hours; and by the time it was properly identified, the boy had become critically ill and passed away.
He is survived by his loving parents and siblings. David Pritchard and Aaron Boeder helped secure a $1,600,000.00 settlement on their behalf.
