This recovery was obtained in a wrongful death case brought against several physicians and their practice. The plaintiff, who was a college student, tragically died after going into respiratory and cardiac arrest during a routine wisdom tooth extraction. The lawsuit alleged that serious errors were made in the administration of general anesthesia by the defendants, as well as in their failure to properly respond to her respiratory and cardiac arrest. It should be noted that this substantial result was achieved despite no appreciable economic damages and the fact that the claims would have been subject to the non-economic damage caps imposed by the 2005 SC Medical Malpractice Act, absent a finding of gross negligence.
