Surgical Errors on Ulcerative Colitis Patient Lead to Death

Our client was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, a type of inflammatory bowel disease that affects the large intestine and rectum. Also, during a surgical procedure to correct this, the surgeon failed to perform an ileostomy in order to protect client’s anastomotic site from breaking down. During the procedure, the surgeons accidentally created a 120 twist in the small bowel mesentery. As a result of this twist in client’s bowel, he suffered from an extensive leak at the ileoanal pouch-anal anastomosis. Client ultimately died from complications. Surgical error malpractice contributed to client’s cause of death. Rosen Louik & Perry fiercely represented the claim for client’s family. This case settled for $375,000.00.
