Patient Severely Disfigured After Radical Thoracotomy

The client in this case complained of mild discomfort in the left chest area. A CT scan revealed bilateral intrathoracic masses of both lungs. She underwent a thoracoscopic biopsy of the masses. It was determined that the masses were benign but needed to be removed. Our client was told that the masses could be removed by non-invasive surgery but nevertheless performed a radical Thoracotomy which resulted in severe disfigurement and the removal of several ribs. This surgical malpractice had devastating effects on the client, and she contacted the malpractice law firm of Rosen Louik & Perry.
This case settled for $1,200,000.00.
