Widow Wins $3 Million Lawsuit After Husband William Martinez Dies in Threesome Sex

| by Michael Allen

In Gwinnett County, Georgia, a jury awarded William Martinez's widow a three million dollar verdict in a medical malpractice case involving Martinez, who suffered a fatal heart attack during a sex act with two other people, reported the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Before the sexual three-way, William Martinez, a 31-year-old police officer, went to Dr. Sreeni Gangasani at the Cardiovascular Group in Lawrenceville, Georgia after experiencing heart problems.

Martinez estate lawyers said that Dr. Gangasani should have recognized that Martinez's heart symptoms were serious, sent him to the hospital for treatment right away and warned him against getting too physical.

Dr. Gangasani did schedule a stress test for eight days later, but a few days after the doctor's visit, Martinez went to a motel near Hartsfield-Jackson Airport to join a woman and another man for a sexual rendezvous.

Martinez reportedly died after having sex numerous times. The female sex partner found him collapsed on the floor on March 12, 2009.

A Gwinnett County jury found Dr. Gangasani to be 60% responsible for Martinez's death and awarded his widow the $3 million settlement.

Attorney Rod Edmond said: "There was enough for him to make the call and to know that he should have sent this man directly to the hospital to get a stress test that clearly would have identified and diagnosed his blocked heart arteries."

An attorney for Dr. Gangasani said: “We’re definitely going to appeal the verdict and the judgment.”
