$17.5 Million School Negligence Settlement

August 20, 2021

$17.5 Million School Negligence Settlement

Plaintiff, a third-grade student, suffered a cardiac arrest while on the school playground. Plaintiff had an underlying heart condition, Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia, which neither Plaintiff’s family nor the school district were aware he suffered from prior to the incident. Eventually, paramedics arrived at his location, used a defibrillator to re-start Plaintiff’s normal heart rhythm and transported him to the hospital. Despite these efforts, Plaintiff suffered anoxic brain injury.

Plaintiff sued the school district for failing to properly train school personnel on how to respond to medical emergencies and based upon the alleged negligence of school administrators and personnel in not having an emergency plan outlining staff responsibility during a medical emergency and a nurse on campus who could have responded to the emergency. 

While no amount of money is worth the suffering Plaintiff and his family have endured, Plaintiff at least now has the funds necessary to provide him with the best possible care and comfort for the rest of his life.
