Case Results

$500,000 Perforated Colon

A New Jersey woman undergoing a hysterectomy sustained a perforation to her colon that was not diagnosed until two days after the surgery. Our expert gynecologist testified at a deposition that while injury to the colon may occur even without malpractice, it was malpractice not to recognize this particular injury at the time of the hysterectomy. Our expert surgeon testified that as a result, our client required more surgery, had additional scars and other complications. The case settled before trial for $500,000.
