Judge Approves Settlement in Case of Montvale Teen who Died

Posted:
Bedford Co., VA - A Bedford County judge has approved a settlement in the case of a Montvale teen who died last year.

17 year old Jessica Hart died in April, just seven hours after being treated at a MedExpress urgent care center in Roanoke County.
   
A doctor saw her for a sore throat and gave her the maximum dose of Dilaudid. 
   
Her mother says she stopped breathing before making it home and died a few hours later.
   
The settlement approved last week is 1.5 million dollars.
