Botched Colon Surgery Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death

Case Synopsis:

Wife’s Lawsuit for Botched Colon Surgery alleges Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death Against Husband’s Surgeon and Hospital – Results in Early Confidential Settlement

A grieving widow formed an Estate and filed a wrongful death lawsuit through Emerson Straw against her husband’s surgeon for negligently operating on his treatable form of colon cancer. The widow believed that the surgeon made errors during the surgery that led to preventable post-operative bowel complications. These serious, but avoidable, complications she contended culminated in her husband contracting infections and sepsis.

These complications were further missed by hospital staff members that resulted in a negligent delay in getting proper and immediate post-surgery follow-up care. A confidential and significant settlement was reached with surgeon on behalf of the Estate after the case was filed. However, the lawsuit against the at-fault hospital was unable to be resolved and that portion of the case continues.

In Florida medical malpractice cases there can often be more than one at fault party or wrongdoer. It is important for all victims of malpractice to hire astute counsel to fully investigate the facts, and let the objective facts lead counsel to identify and bring causes of action against all, not just some, of the responsible parties.
