Four families were devastated with the loss of family members between 2003 and 2010 at the Coatesville Veterans Affairs Medical Clinic in Coatesville, Virginia. Although each case was different and the four patients were unrelated, each died due to the medical malpractice of the clinic. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs settled those four cases for an aggregate award of $1.4 million.
Specifically, one family was awarded $100,000 after their loved one was killed due to the clinic’s failure to monitor. In another case, the improper management of a psychiatric patient ended with a nearly $500,000 settlement. In the third case, a family was awarded $300,000 when a patient was killed due to a wrongful diagnosis. Finally, a fourth patient’s family was awarded $500,000 when their loved one died following the clinic’s failure to monitor.
