Georgia manís death during threesome nets his family $3M in trial
NY Daily News ^ | 6-4-12 | Erik Ortiz

Posted on 06/04/2012 4:54:36 PM PDT by dynachrome

The family of a Georgia man who died when his heart couldn’t take a three-way sex romp was awarded a hefty $3 million payout by a jury, according to reports.

William Martinez’s estate was originally seeking $5 million in a medical malpractice case that claimed a cardiologist failed to warn the 31-year-old to stay away from physical activity. While Gwinnett County jurors sided with the family Tuesday, they agreed to a lesser amount after finding Martinez was 40% liable for his own death, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Wednesday.

Martinez, a husband and father of two, was engaged in a threesome with a friend and another woman who was not his wife, according to the newspaper. He died March 12, 2009.

So everyone else with cardiovascular disease will pay MORE for their services so these doctors can reward those who abuse the judicial system. Insurance rates will continue to rise..... Oh, when will we learn. Tort Reform NOW.

Martinez was 40% liable for his own death

I'd say closer to 33%.

There is a VERY substantial penalty for early withdrawal.

little confused by the wording it says a friend and another woman... was the friend a guy?

so was it 2 guys and a girl or two girls and him? an accidental crossing of swords could give many a heart attack.

There’s a 7% penalty fee for stupidity.

Schmuck. A pain in the arm, etc is a warning that you have a problem.

Take two aspirin and call your menage a trois in the morning.

Now, Mr. Martinez, as your physician, I must counsel you against bisexual menages a trois ...

What is wrong with these lawyers? What about the other guy? What about the female? They get nothing? The post traumatic stress, the mental pain and suffering, the humiliation, the smell of the dead guy ... etc. etc.

BTW, how was the doc supposed to know that Martinez had a kink? STOP THE PRESSES!

I just checked the link to the original article. Dr. Sreeni Gangasani, of all people, should have known this from his medical reading of the Kama Sutra. Give Mama Martinez el dinero. BTW, this doc must have a mail order diploma ... guy comes in with chest pains and the shooting pain in the arm thing and Sabu schedules the test for 8 days later?

Dr. Gangasani, you were welly welly bad. Did you take a slow googly to the head when you were a child? Pay the man.
