Medical Malpractice

$1.9 Million for Medical Misdiagnosis

Medical Malpractice lawyerMedical Misdiagnosis: Partner, Robert J. Adinolfi, recently settled a malpractice case for $1.9 million on behalf of a woman who suffered a misdiagnosis of sepsis after giving birth.  The plaintiff had previously underwent gastric bypass surgery years prior for weight loss.  When she presented for routine labor and delivery, she began to experience abdominal pain.  Rather than order appropriate testing and follow-up, a systemic infection was missed causing plaintiff to lose a portion of her colon.  As a result, her bowel habits are different than they were before.

The defense vigorously defended the claim, saying the pain plaintiff experienced was typical of childbirth, and that there was no reason to suspect an infection due to the significant similarities one experiences after giving birth.

There is a lack of awareness on the part of surgeons and obstetricians alike when it comes to the problems that can result when giving birth after having weight loss surgery.  Mr. Adinolfi has settled several cases in the past involving complications from weight loss surgery, and presently has multiple cases involving the residual impact weight loss surgery has had on women, later in life.  If you or a loved one feel you have been mistreated by a physician as it relates to weight loss surgery, pregnancy, or problems caused by a surgeon, do not hesitate to call.  A confidential in-person consultation is free.
