$12 Million Awarded in Medical Malpractice Wrongful Death
The family of a New Jersey man, who died after having his wisdom teeth extracted in 2005, has been awarded over $12 million in a medical malpractice lawsuit according to Press Release Newswire.
The lawsuit alleged an oral surgeon extracted the 21-year-old’s wisdom teeth despite knowing he had an immunity disorder which precluded any surgery or other dental work. The young man had a swollen throat the next day as reaction to the surgery and later died of suffocation.
