Understanding Intubation Malpractice

The intubation process is supposed to ensure that the patient is able to get enough oxygen. However, errors during the process (including failing to place the tube in the airway) can put patients at risk of suffering significant harm. The oxygen deprivation can quickly become fatal. In addition to suffering harm due to oxygen deprivation associated with an improper intubation, it is also possible for the patient to suffer lung infections, pneumonia, and other complications that could be fatal. Overall, these complications which often have fatal outcomes occur as a direct result of the negligence of medical experts.

What is the Average Value of an Intubation Malpractice Wrongful Death Case?

How much is your intubation malpractice wrongful death claim worth? There are a number of factors that can affect the value of a claim, including the age of the victim, the specific harm suffered, and losses to the family, for example. Because of this, the best thing that affected parties could do is to discuss their claims with experienced attorneys to learn more about the potential value of their claims.

Would you like to review the value of past intubation malpractice wrongful death claims? Although you should not make assumptions based on past claim values, reviewing past claim values could help you better understand how case values are determined.

Consider some of the examples discussed below:

  • $200,000 – In 2011, a 26-year-old woman suffered a severe asthma attack and emergency services were called. When the EMTs arrived, they intubated her but placed the tube in the esophagus instead of the trachea. This ultimately resulted in the woman’s death. It is important to note that the settlement is low because the defendant was a state employee in a state with immunity for tort claims beyond the $200,000 mark (Florida).
  • $225,000 – In 2018, an 84-year-old nursing home patient suffered a medical emergency that required intubation. The staff at the nursing home made numbers unsuccessful attempts to intubate the patient. The staff was determined to have negligently perforated the patient’s trachea during the process of attempting the intubate. Unfortunately, the patient died on the way to the hospital.
  • $500,000 – In 2013, a 50-year-old woman suffered medical complications that required her to be intubated. Eventually, she was extubated but had to be intubated once again due to additional complications. While the nurses were turning the patient on her side, the tube was knocked out and the nurses and doctors failed to notice, causing the patient to die as a result of oxygen deprivation.
  • $1,375,000 – In 2013, a pregnant woman who presented herself to deliver her child was ordered to have an emergency C-section. During the procedure, the woman had to be intubated. The anesthesiologist failed to secure the airways resulting in multiple failed intubations. The woman died as a result of the failure to intubate.
  • $1,500,000 – In 2013, an elderly patient with respiratory problems presented respiratory failure. The medical team opted out of intubation and chose to subject the patient to BiPAP (bilevel positive airway pressure). When this worsened the patient’s condition, the medical team attempted intubation (which failed). The patient died as a result of complications associated with the different attempts made by the medical team.
  • $3,000,000 – In 2019, a 56-year-old patient unfortunately died due to improper intubation just one day after being admitted to a hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In this incident, the anesthesiologist inserted the breathing tube into the esophagus (rather than the trachea where it belongs) and failed to identify and address the mistake before the victim’s death.

File Your Claim Quickly

How long do you have to file your intubation malpractice wrongful death claim? All claims, including medical malpractice wrongful death claims are subject to strict deadlines that claimants must adhere to. The deadline that applies to your claim is based on a statute of limitations; if claimants fail to file their claims within the time allowed by the statute of limitations, they could lose their right to sue.

What deadline applies to your claim? In California, medical malpractice claims are subject to one of two deadlines: either three years from the date on injury or one year from the date of discovery of the injury. However, wrongful death claims are subject to a different statute of limitations; wrongful death claims must be filed within a two-year period.

To ensure that you file your claim on time (and to prevent losing the right to sue), you should seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm at your earliest convenience.
