medical malpractice

Russ Berkowitz has just settled a medical malpractice case against a bariatric surgeon and a hospital on behalf of a client who sustained catastrophic gastrointestinal injuries following weight loss surgery as a result of the defendants’ failure to timely diagnose her anastomotic leak. Because of the delayed diagnosis, our client developed sepsis and her condition became so grave she was forced to undergo multiple gastrointestinal procedures. Unfortunately, our client was ultimately forced to have her stomach removed and she will have to use a feeding tube for the rest of her life. The terms of the settlement are confidential.
