Date: March 5, 2014
Verdict: $4,010,000.00

Overview of Case: This was a wrongful death and medical malpractice case arising out of the failure to diagnose and properly treat a postoperative hematoma following elective cervical fusion surgery. Following the patient’s death, Plaintiffs alleged that Sierra Vista Hospital and Dr. Donald Ramberg conspired to hide the true cause of death from the family, and lied and attempted to mislead the family with a bogus autopsy attributing the patient’s death to natural causes.

Representing attorneys Steve Vartazarian of The Vartazarian Law Firm and Tyrone Maho of Maho & Prentice contacted DK Global to create a Medical Animation that highlighted the surgical process as well as the subsequent development of the hematoma that led to the patient’s death.
