University of Colorado settles with family of man who died after oral surgery, agrees to pay $150,000

from The Denver Post

The University of Colorado has agreed to pay $150,000 — the maximum allowed by state law — to the family of a 41-year-old man who died after surgery to extract an abscessed tooth. Patrick O'Rourke, an attorney for CU, confirmed that the university had paid the settlement to the family of Simon Medrano, who suffered a brain injury during oral surgery Sept. 9, 2008, and died four days later without ever regaining consciousness. "We wanted to resolve a case where we thought that there was a harm to the family, and they have our sympathies," O'Rourke said. The $150,000 payment is the maximum allowed under the Colorado Governmental Immunity Act. more
