$2.9 Million Settlement for Death of 6 Year Old While in MRI

In a horribly tragic case in Westchester, New York, a 6 year old boy was killed while undergoing an MRI in 2001. A technician had been walking by with an oxygen cannister that should never have been in the area because of the powerful magnet being used. The cannister became a missile and struck and killed the little boy.

The hospital publicly admitted liability and initially offered the family $1 million to settle. The offer was rejected. After 9 years of tortured litigation, motions and appeals, the family finally settled this case for $2.9 million.

New York Attorney John Hochfelder does a great job evaluating and giving a full analysis of this case, together with his reasons for why this death case had such a high value. He commends New York attorney Tom Moore, senior partner at Kramer Diloff Livingston and Moore for having the tenacity to achieve what most other attorneys could not have accomplished. I wholeheartedly agree with John's assessment of Tom Moore and Matt Gaier.
