Bill Paxton Death

According to a court filing Friday, the family of late actor Bill Paxton has agreed to settle a wrongful death lawsuit against a Los Angeles hospital and the physician who performed his heart surgery weeks before his death in 2017.
The lawsuit, which was filed against Cedars-Sinai Medical Center more than four years ago, was set to go to trial next month. However, counsel for Paxton’s wife of 30 years, Louise, and their two children, James and Lydia, filed a notice of settlement in Los Angeles Superior Court.

In a statement, plaintiffs’ lawyers Bruce Broillet and Steve Heimberg said, “The matter has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties.”

Paxton, who appeared in films such as “Apollo 13,” “Titanic,” and “Aliens,” as well as television shows such as “Big Love,” died on February 25, 2017.

According to his death certificate, the cause was a stroke 11 days after surgery to replace a heart valve and repair aortic damage.

A year later, a complaint was filed alleging that the surgeon, Dr. Ali Khoynezhad, employed an unneeded “high risk and unusual surgical method” that he lacked the ability to conduct, and that he understated the procedure’s hazards.
According to the lawsuit, the erroneous therapy caused Paxton to suffer from severe bleeding, cardiogenic shock, and a damaged coronary artery, and Cedars-Sinai was aware that Khoynezhad tended to “engage in maverick surgery and demonstrate substandard judgment.”

According to court filings, the defendants stated that Paxton and his family were aware of the hazards associated with the procedure and freely underwent it. According to the defendants, there was no carelessness that resulted in his death.
The Paxton family’s four-year legal battle was highlighted by numerous attempts to acquire further discovery information from the hospital, as well as regular court hearings on the subject.

From the early 1980s until his death, Paxton, who was born and reared in Fort Worth, Texas, was one of the industry’s busiest actors, garnering nearly 100 credits, including “Twister” and “Weird Science.” When he died, he was appearing in the CBS drama series “Training Day.”
