Virgina and Washington, DC lawyers Bartoli Cain Wason PLLC obtained another medical malpractice award - and justice - for their client. An otherwise healthy woman underwent a supracervical laparoscopic hysterectomy for excessive uterine bleeding. During the procedure, the defendant OB-GYN injured the bowel and right ureter without recognizing the injuries. When the patient presented to the Emergency Room in severe pain, the CT scan showed a very large pelvic fluid collection consistent with an abscess. During emergency laparotomy surgery, the general surgeon found a hole in the patient’s sigmoid colon and so a colostomy was performed. The patient had a significant amount of output from her drain tube after the colostomy surgery, which led to the eventual diagnosis of the right ureteral injury. Since that time, the patient has undergone several surgeries to treat her ureter, colostomy, and other issues. She had to wear bags to collect her feces and urine for 10 months.

This was a no-offer case prior to trial. The case settled following the presentation of the plaintiff’s case by Bartoli Cain Wason PLLC.
