Celebrity Encounters with Medical Malpractice

Even celebrities have problems with medical malpractice from time to time. Below is a list of some of the most famous medical malpractice cases involving celebrities and their families.

  • The singer Julie Andrews, star of Mary Poppins, entered the hospital to have surgery on her throat. After surgeons bungled the job she was unable to sing for years afterward. She eventually recovered an undisclosed monetary settlement. However, to this day she is unable to sing with the same range she once had.
  • The mother of Kanye West passed away in 2007 due to complications during a ‘tummy-tuck’ operation. The doctor already had two medical malpractice cases filed against him.
  • In 1997, actor and comedian Dana Carvey’s surgeon bypassed the wrong artery during heart surgery and endangered his life. Carvey sued for medical malpractice and was awarded $7.5 million, which he donated to charity.
  • Perhaps the most famous of all medical malpractice cases is the death of Michael Jackson. Jackson’s personal doctor admitted to violating standard medical procedures by giving the singer powerful pain killers that eventually caused his death.

When celebrities become the victims of medical malpractice they hire the most experienced and qualified medical malpractice attorneys that money can buy. Fortunately, you don’t need to be rich to hire a good attorney. Most medical malpractice attorneys work on a contingency fee basis.
