Pain Management Doctor Faces Two Lawsuits


A Denver pain management doctor currently faces two lawsuits -- one for medical malpractice and the other for wrongful death. In both cases, his errors led to cardiac arrest in the patients. One woman died, while the other suffered brain damage.

Dr. Daniel Brookoff administered trigger point injections of a pain medicine called Marcaine to both patients. The injections caused both women to experience a lack of oxygen to the brain. One woman suffered a heart attack and died. The other had a seizure and a heart attack, but ultimately survived. She suffered permanent injuries, including a brain injury that has affected her memory and multitasking abilities.

The lawsuit claims that Dr. Brookoff did not have the personnel, oxygen, cardiopulmonary resuscitative equipment, or defibrillators necessary to handle either situation. Furthermore, the plaintiffs have argued that Brookoff did not possess the proper pain management accreditation and did not make full use of the facilities at the hospital where he works.

In the medical malpractice suit, the victim is seeking compensation for loss of income, past and future medical expenses, and non-economic damages. It is uncertain how much compensation the deceased woman's widower is seeking in his wrongful death suit.

If you have a medical malpractice or wrongful death claim in the Denver, Colorado area, please contact the Law Offices of Burg, Simpson, Eldredge, Hersh, & Jardine, P.C. today to schedule a consultation.
