Cindy Frey Sues Mount Sinai Hospital and Surgeon for the Wrongful Death of her Husband, Eagles Guitarist, Glenn Fray

By Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP. posted in Hospital Negligence on Monday, December 09, 2019.

As reported in Rolling Stone on the 17th of January 2018, the wife of Eagles co-founder and guitarist Glenn Fray filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Mount Sinai Hospital and the gastroenterologist who treated him.

According to Cindy Frey, Glenn’s widow, the gastroenterologist who treated Glenn was negligent when caring for him and failed to properly treat and diagnose his condition. Glenn died in January 2016 as a result of this, as he experienced complications from his rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia. Apparently, Glenn’s gastroenterologist did not promptly and properly treat his ulcerative colitis and the other symptoms and diseases of his bowel that were presented. Additionally, he did not assess Glenn for respiratory issues, treat a notable infection, or hospitalize him promptly when he realized that something was wrong.

As a result of his gastroenterologist’s negligence, Glenn became sick, lame, and disabled, and also suffered from injuries, pain, and mental anguish. He was forced to seek additional medical care and attention for his resulting worsening condition and had to incur the expenses of these additional consultations. Ultimately, Genn became permanently injured and disabled until the time of his death.

According to her lawyer, Cindy Frey is seeking unspecified damages for pain and suffering, wrongful death, and the loss of services of a spouse. The case is still pending.

Legal Matters

Filing a wrongful death claim can be very difficult, and it is usually an immediate family member that wishes to file a claim to receive compensation for the untimely death of their loved one. Family members may seek this compensation for a multitude of reasons, but the most common reasons people usually seek compensation include:

  • Covering the hospital expenses of the family member who died
  • Recognizing the emotional damages and loss of companionship of that family member
  • Covering the loss of financial income that family member would have provided
  • Covering the loss of future financial earnings until the time of retirement that the family member would have provided
  • Recognizing the pain and suffering experienced by that family member before their death, as well as the pain and suffering experienced by the living relatives
  • Covering funeral expenses

Because of the complexities associated with wrongful death claims, as well as the fact that it is a civil action, you should consult with a qualified medical malpractice lawyer before filing a wrongful death medical malpractice lawsuit.

Many elements need to be considered when filing a medical malpractice lawsuit. These, like the law, differ by state, and so you will need a qualified NYC medical malpractice attorney if you live in NYC. This attorney will be able to explain the key elements of filing a wrongful death claim, as well as help you prove these elements to have the best possible chance of winning your claim. Typically, you will need to prove the following elements:

  1. Your family member’s death occurred because of medical negligence
  2. The healthcare professional involved breached their duty of providing your family member with the best possible care
  3. It was this breach of duty that caused your family member’s death
  4. Your family member’s death created quantifiable financial and emotional damages to your family and/or your family member who died
