Doctor found negligent

A surgeon in Redlands was found negligent in the diagnosis or treatment in a wrongful death suit filed by the husband whose wife died in 2009.

The woman was operated on in 2009 to remove part of her pancreas - a very complicated and risky procedure. His negligence in not recommending a more experienced surgeon who has done this surgery many times was found to have caused her death. It should have been done in a major facility, not small community hospital. A second doctor was also found negligent, but his assistance was not a factor in her death. The suit also named the hospital.

During her surgery a major vein was torn and repaired. She died that evening.

The unanimous jury awarded the man more than $4.4 million in damages. Of course, his wife was worth a lot more alive to him. If you or someone you know has been operated on by a negligent surgeon and has suffered extreme damage or death, contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who is familiar with medical malpractice lawsuits.
