Surgical Error

Our client underwent hip surgery, but the surgeon decided to try a new technique and device, resulting in damage to the blood flow to the leg. He failed to notify the client or nurses of the problems during surgery. The nurses then failed to appreciate that our client’s leg was turning cold and blue. Our client eventually required an above knee amputation on her right leg as a result of the defendants’ negligence. This case settled confidentially for 2,000,000.00.
