We represented a 39-year-old woman who was admitted to the hospital for a total abdominal hysterectomy. During the procedure, the surgeon perforated the patient’s bowel and failed to recognize this injury. Over the next several days, the surgeon and hospital staff failed to recognize changes in the patient’s condition, resulting in peritonitis and sepsis. As a result of these painful infections, the woman suffered life-altering injuries. We filed suit against both the surgeon and the hospital for negligence.
