    Practice Area:
    Medical Malpractice
    Date:
    Oct 02, 2014
    Outcome:
    5 million dollar verdict
    Description:
    On Thursday, October 2, 2014, a Nashville jury held a pediatric clinic accountable for the wrongful death of 22 month old Ryder Laurent and awarded 5 million dollars in damages. Ryder died on June 10, 2009 from Ehrlichiosis, a tick borne illness. “We are very pleased that the jury carefully listened to this tragic matter and rendered a verdict that was fair and just,” Said Ms. Laurent’s attorney, Daniel Clayton of Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge in Nashville. “Ms. Laurent did everything she could to get help for her son. The medical providers let her down.” Ehrlichiosis is a bacterial infection transmitted by ticks, like Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. The disease causes flu-like symptoms in those infected and, as in the case of Ryder Laurent, it can be fatal if it remains untreated. The antibiotic Doxycycline is the “first line treatment” for Ehlichosis according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). If it is administered within the first 4-5 days of symptoms, fever usually subsides within 24-72 hours and the infection is cured with no long-term problems.
