Nearly $4M medical malpractice claim filed against surgeon

A surgeon in a different state has been blamed for a woman's botched operation. In fact, the woman is suing the surgeon for around $4 million due to his alleged medical malpractice. In the same way, a person in Texas who suffers harm at the hand of a negligent surgeon may seek to hold that surgeon accountable in civil court.

The woman in the out-of-state medical malpractice case asserted that a gastroenterologist essentially poisoned her with fluids from her own body. This allegedly happened when the surgeon cut her during her surgery. The way in which the doctor cut her reportedly caused bodily fluids to enter and cover her organs, resulting in health issues for her.

The woman claimed that other medical staff did not diagnose her problem, and as a result, it was not treated right away. The reportedly serious health issue caused the woman to have to stay in a couple of hospitals for more than 100 days, followed by three months in a nursing home setting. The gastroenterologist's alleged medical mistake caused the woman to accrue over $800,000 in medical bills. She asserted that she also suffered millions of dollars' worth of noneconomic damages.

A surgical mistake can quickly take a toll on a patient physically, emotionally and financially. Fortunately, patients who are harmed by doctors in Texas have the right to file medical malpractice claims against these medical providers, seeking the reimbursement of damages. A successfully fought suit, based upon a showing of negligence, may lead to a judicial award of damages that might help to cover medical expenses, the loss of wages and other losses stemming from the documented medical malpractice incident.
