Misdiagnosis lead to son’s death, family says
The family of late CU student Benjamin Stattman has filed a lawsuit against Wardenburg Health Center, saying Stattman received substandard treatment there that resulted in his death.
According to the case filed in District Court in Boulder, Wardenburg Health Center allegedly failed to properly diagnose Stattman and provide him with appropriate treatment.
Stattman’s parents, Ken and Carol Stattman, also said Wardenburg Health Center claimed to be specialists in the area their son Stattman needed assistance, and because of care and treatment at Wardenburg, Stattman died.
As a result of Stattman’s death, his parents are asking for damages for their loss including “grief, loss of companionship, pain and suffering, emotional stress, and net pecuniary loss,” according to the case file. Wardenburg was required to file with the Clerk of the District Court in Boulder by Oct. 13.
Wardenburg Executive Director Robert Cranny declined to comment on the case, referring The Campus Press to Wardenburg’s attorneys. Cranny announced his resignation as executive director last month.
