Surgeon Sued Following Man’s Death During Surgery

Request a Free Consultation

WKW was consulted by our clients after suspicions arose surrounding the death of their father during surgery. At the end of a planned singular lung lobe removal, a general surgeon damaged his patient’s vena cava blood vessel while attempting to remove a benign lymph node. Massive bleeding ensued, leading to death. To prove the case of medical malpractice, Bruce Kehoe obtained an order to exhume the body for a forensic autopsy, which proved the surgeon had stapled the vena cava shut in an attempt to control the bleeding caused by his negligence. A successful malpractice claim provided comfort and closure to the deserving family.
