Khalidi Law Firm Settles Medical Negligence Lawsuit
Our firm recently settled a medical negligence lawsuit for a client who entered a hospital to remove a cancerous growth on her colon.
Good surgical practice requires that a surgeon must “know before cutting” by mapping out the anatomy of the area of the operation. In the case of colon cancer surgery in the pelvis, this includes identifying the position of the ureter.
The defendant surgeon neglected to identify the position of the ureter. The surgeon cut the ureter then failed to recognize her mistake or recognize subsequent complications. Our client became gravely ill from sepsis and was transferred to a highly skilled and qualified surgeon who saved her life.
Prior to the start of the trial, the defendant surgeon consented to settle our client’s medical negligence lawsuit for a confidential amount.
