MalpracticeMr. Bushman successfully pursues medical malpractice litigation against doctors, hospitals and other providers where their treatment has caused personal injuries and monetary damages to the client.

Three cases illustrative of the firm’s pursuit of medical malpractice cases includes one where the client received rotor cuff surgery and spent the night in the hospital to obtain a morphine drip to reduce the pain of the incisions used to complete the procedure. The nurse at the hospital where the client was staying inadequately hooked up the morphine drip to the intravenous solution leading to the client’s arm and the morphine fell on the floor the entire night. Needless to say the client was in excruciating pain for the entire night and only in the morning did the attendant discover the error. Damages were recovered for client for the negligence of the provider.

A second case involved a client that fell and broke her back requiring physical therapist services to teach her to walk again. While training, the physical therapist directed client to walk on her own to a given location without support or assistance from the therapist. Client fell again and broke her leg. Client’s husband attempted to have several major law firms take her case and all declined. Client’s husband knew Rex Bushman and asked him to take the case. Rex successfully represented the client and settled her case for a significant sum at mediation and without trial.

A third client was given an overdose of blood thinner medication and not properly monitored to discover condition of client of too little ability in the blood to clot, causing risk loss of life with a cut or bruising of the skin or muscles. Upon discovery the client was hospitalized for a period of days to bring the patient’s blood level of the drug back to normal. Client sued medical providers for negligence and damages were paid with settlement out of court.
