Gastric Bypass Case Results

Multimillion-dollar recovery for mother of two  A 51-year-old woman who lived in the Squirrel Hill section of Pittsburgh underwent gastric bypass surgery. After being discharged to her home, she returned to the hospital a few days later because of a bowel obstruction. While undergoing surgery to treat the bowel obstruction, the anesthesiologist did not properly insert the breathing tube (called an endotracheal tube), and the patient ended up with aspiration pneumonia and died several days later. She left two sons under the age of 10. We filed a medical malpractice and wrongful death claim and obtained a multimillion-dollar recovery against the hospital and the anesthesiologist.

Significant recovery for Gastric Bypass patient - A 45-year-old wife and mother from Kane, Pennsylvania underwent gastric bypass surgery. A few days later, her endotracheal tube came out of position and the loss of oxygen caused her permanent brain damage. She eventually died one year later from the brain damage. We filed suit against the hospital, nurses and doctors who were supposed to be watching the endotracheal tube, and a large award was obtained for this woman's husband and her 19-year-old daughter.
