Duffy & Duffy secured a $4,725,000 settlement for a man who now has permanent physical and cognitive deficits as a result of an aortic root aneurysm. After his twin brother was diagnosed with the same condition, the client underwent a screening echocardiogram and a chest x-ray since he was at a higher risk. Tragically the aortic aneurysm was overlooked and ruptured 19 months later.
