Chester, SC -- Mr. Fulda and Ms. Perkins were successful in representing the estate of a 42 year-old husband and father who suffered a fatal heart attack after seeking medical assistance for chest pain/discomfort from three separate medical providers in a 30-day period.  Mr. Fulda and Ms. Perkins were able to show that the Defendants failed to complete adequate chest pain assessments and request cardiac consults, which could have saved the young father’s life.  The majority of the settlement proceeds of $765,000 of this medical malpractice wrongful death case were placed in annuities to provide for the widow for life, and to fund a college education for the daughter.
