Bill Paxton’s family reach settlement with hospital… five months after $1 million settlement

The family of the late actor Bill Paxton has agreed to settle a wrongful death lawsuit against a Los Angeles hospital and the surgeon who performed his heart surgery shortly before his death in 2017, according to a court filing Friday.

The move comes five months after the family reached a $1 million settlement with a medical group.

The newly settled lawsuit, which was filed against Cedars-Sinai Medical Center more than four years ago, was scheduled to go to trial next month.

However, attorneys for Paxton’s 30-year-old wife, Louise, and their two children, James and Lydia, filed a notice in Los Angeles Superior Court that they had agreed to a settlement of the case.

“The matter has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties,” plaintiffs’ attorneys Bruce Broillet and Steve Heimberg said in a statement.

The terms are confidential, the attorneys said. E-mails asking for comments from the defendants were not immediately answered. The agreement has yet to be approved by a judge.

Paxton, who starred in films such as Apollo 12, Titanic and Aliens and in television series such as Big Love, died on February 11, 2017.

The cause was a stroke that occurred 11 days after surgery to replace a heart valve and repair damage to an aorta, according to his death certificate.

In a lawsuit against Dr. Ali Khoynezhad was alleged to have used a “high-risk and unconventional surgical approach” that was unnecessary and lacked the experience to perform it, and that he downplayed the risks of the procedure

The lawsuit, filed a year later, alleged that the surgeon, Dr. Ali Khoynezhad used a “risky and unconventional surgical approach” that he said was unnecessary and lacked the experience to perform it, and downplayed the risks of the procedure.

The misguided treatment left Paxton with excessive bleeding, cardiogenic shock and an impaired coronary artery, the lawsuit says, and said Cedars-Sinai knew Khoynezhad tended to “get involved in one-on-one surgeries and display suboptimal judgment.” .

The defendants said in court documents that Paxton and his family knew and understood the risks involved with the procedure and voluntarily proceeded with the surgery. The defendants said there was no negligence that led to his death.

The four-year legal battle was marked by frequent attempts by the Paxton family to extract more discovery evidence from the hospital and frequent court hearings on the issue.

Back in February, the family received $1 million in another settlement with a medical group.

The actor’s family sued Dr. Moody Makar, the anesthesiologist for Paxton’s surgery in February 2017, and the general anesthesia specialist partnership.

The group denied responsibility for Paxton’s death, stating that its staff upheld the standard of care provided their involvement in the care and treatment of … Paxton and nothing that their staff did or did not do caused or contributed to his death have .’

While the group “denies liability in this matter,” they added to the settlement’s will to “fairly indemnify the plaintiffs and avoid exposing the defendant to an expensive and time-consuming litigation.”
