William Martinez died in March 2009 during a threesome with a woman who was not his wife and a male friend. Now, his family has been awarded $3 million because his cardiologist failed to inform him that overexerting himself is a bad idea.

Back in 2009, the Lawrenceville, Ga., native visited Dr. Sreenivasulu Gangasani after suffering chest pains that traveled to his arm. Gangasani assesed that Martinez was at "high risk" for having having clogged arteries and scheduled a stress test. Martinez died during the threesome, one day before the scheduled test.

Representing Martinez's estate, attorneys Rod Edmond and Tricia Hoffler argued that Gangasani did not take a proper medical history, nor did he tell Martinez to stop all physical activity prior to the test. Earlier this week, a jury granted Martinez's family $3 million in damages. They had previously sought $5 million, but it was determined that he was 40 percent responsible for his own death.
