Garcia & Artigliere obtained a $38.6 million settlement – the largest health care settlement in California history – on behalf of a young mother who suffered a stroke while she was visiting her ill son in a Southern California hospital. The lawsuit alleged that the facility ignored her stroke symptoms, leading to her severe impairment. The hospital and numerous treating physicians were sued for medical negligence, loss of consortium and violations of the Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act.
