$1.8 Million Settlement

Medical Malpractice Case This medical negligence action involves Defendants’ negligent failure to appropriately diagnose Plaintiff as suffering from endometriosis before performing a robotic-assisted laparoscopic abdominal hysterectomy in 2013. Because Defendants failed to confirm the diagnosis preoperatively, and the postoperative pathology conclusively showed no endometriosis, Plaintiff, then age 34, underwent a surgery that was neither clinically indicated nor medically necessary. Furthermore, while performing the hysterectomy, Defendant Physician failed to recognize and treat an intraoperative injury, namely a jejunal (small bowel) perforation. As a result, Patient became septic, and went into organ failure. Patient was ultimately admitted to the hospital for four months, during which time she underwent thirteen (13) separate surgeries. Patient still requires two additional surgeries to repair a large abdominal defect resulting from the delayed diagnosis.
