Our Recent $5 Million Victory Is Just One of Our Many Successes
On September 24, 2021, attorneys Ashton Hyde and John Macfarlane secured a $5,000,000 jury award for clients whose mother died after doctors improperly withdrew life-sustaining care.
The jury found that negligence on the part of Dr. Wei Peng and Dr. Christina G. Richards resulted in the death of 67-year-old Lillian “Lil” Birt on April 25, 2016. Two weeks before, Ms. Birt suffered a surgical complication but had a good prognosis. The jury found that Dr. Peng and Dr. Richards failed to adequately explain to the family that Ms. Birt's health was improving and that she would likely survive and make a good recovery. Instead, Dr. Peng and Dr. Richards certified Ms. Birt as terminal and agreed to withdraw life support, resulting in Ms. Birt’s death.
At the end of a nine-day trial, the jury agreed with our law firm's allegation that Ms. Birt's care should not have been withdrawn, and that Dr. Richards and Dr. Peng had breached the standard of care. The jury also concluded that Ms. Birt would have lived and achieved a full or near-full recovery, but for the negligent actions of Dr. Peng and Dr. Richards.
The jury awarded $2 million to each of Ms. Birt’s surviving children. Ms. Birt’s estate was awarded $1 million for her pain and suffering prior to her death.

Younker-Hyde-McFarlane are the best there is! My wife needed a lower back spinal fusion that should have been relatively straightforward. She was seriously injured by a careless doctor... We contacted Younker-Hyde-McFarlane to represent us in a medical malpractice suit. OMG, these guys are so impressive! They uncovered things about the surgery that we had no idea had happened. Their skills in arguing our case to an arbitration panel were extraordinary. We very highly recommend this fantastic team of legal experts!!View on Google
