William Martinez: A Case Study

242 Words1 Page
William Martinez was awarded $3 million by a Georgia jury in 2012. He was a 31 year old who complained to chest pain that could be felt radiating through his arm. He went to a cardiologist’s office where the cardiologist said he was at “high risk” of having a heart disease. A nuclear stress test was scheduled to be 8 days later. On the day before his test, Martinez engaged in sexual activity (a threesome) and died during the experience. His family decided to sue the cardiologist, claiming he wasn’t told to avoid exertional activity. They believe if Martinez would have been told otherwise, he would not have engaged in it. The cardiologist alleged that they had clearly informed Martinez to avoid any exertional activity until the test was completed.
