Family of Joan Rivers Settles Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

The family of Joan Rivers has settled its medical malpractice claim against a New York City medical clinic. The medical negligence lawsuit was filed after the comedienne died following a routine procedure. The family asserted several different claims, including that the medical staff performed unauthorized procedures and took selfies while she was unconscious. Additionally, the complaint alleged that the health care professionals disregarded Ms. Rivers' vital signs showing signs of distress and that when Ms. Rivers expressed concern about potential complications affecting her ability to breathe, she was disregarded and called "paranoid." The details of the settlement remain confidential.

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, or other health care professional fails to act with the appropriate standard of care and as a result, harm occurs.
