Family Awarded $3M in Medical Negligence Case After Woman Dies from Flesh-Eating Bacteria

A Camden County Superior Court jury has just awarded $3 million to the family of the late Adrienne Nock, 54, the beloved social services agency client benefits specialist-advocate, whose preventable, in-hospital death on March 3, 2017, was caused in large part by the failure of numerous medical personnel to urgently treat her for necrotizing fasciitis, the often fatal disease commonly known as flesh-eating bacteria, according to her family’s legal team from Saltz Mongeluzzi Bendesky.

The verdict in the case (Tyrone Nock v. Kennedy Memorial Hospital-Washington Township, et al. Superior Court of NJ, CAM-L-002856-18) was reached after a two-month trial and more than two days of jury deliberations.

Attorneys Steven G. Wigrizer and Jason S. Weiss, and Morgan A. Kendall, stated after the jury verdict, “Adrienne Nock, loving wife, mother and grandmother, devoted her career in public service to compassionately and without delay assisting the under-served citizens of Camden County to improve their lives. She was focused and fearless. Tragically, when her life was on the line, the medical professionals entrusted with her care, failed to swiftly act – by immediately performing life-saving surgery – and as a result she died in what we demonstrated to the jury was a potentially preventable death.”
