From experience, Berkowitz and Hanna LLC knows that surgical mistakes can have long-lasting consequences. In the legal field, these cases fall under the umbrella of medical malpractice. He aquí un caso de negligencia medica en un juicio civil contra un cirujano de North Carolina.

As explained in The Times News, the case was based on an emergency appendectomy the surgeon did on the plaintiff on Christmas Day 2009. El siguiente mes de mayo, la demandante requirió una segunda apendicectomía al desarrollar otro caso de apendicitis porque una porción de su apéndice permaneció intacto después de la primera cirugía. She was also pregnant at the time of the additional procedure, which resulted in the premature birth of her daughter, who allegedly developed disabilities resulting from her birth. The jury found in favor of the plaintiff and will soon determine the amount monetary damages.
