A Recent Case Illustrates Our Effectiveness at Handling Surgical Error Cases

Our client submitted to surgery for the removal of uterine fibroids. During the procedure the surgeon mistakenly removed one of her kidneys , believing it was a fibroid. Our investigation yielded evidence of negligence, including a video of the laparoscopic procedure showing the removal of the healthy organ. The defendant refused to make a fair offer in negotiations and we took the case to trial. The result was a jury verdict of $2.8 million.
