Maack v. St. Mark’s Hospital, Third District Court for Salt Lake County, #180900286 (Hon. Keith Kelly). This Salt Lake personal injury medical malpractice case was set for trial next Monday, February 10th, but the case settled this morning as to the hospital, the only remaining defendant. (The treating orthopedic surgeon had settled with the plaintiff two weeks ago.)
This involved an alleged failure to timely diagnose and treat compartment syndrome in plaintiff’s right lower leg. Mr. Maack had fractured his leg with surgical repair at St. Mark’s Hospital. He later developed compartment syndrome, and claimed that this was diagnosed too late to prevent permanent damage.
Counsel: David Cutt and Lena Daggs for plaintiff; Tawni Anderson for St. Mark’s Hospital.
