Our team obtained a $6 million verdict, including attorney's fees and costs, for the loved ones of a mother who died as a result of surgical mismanagement of a urological procedure. Tragically, the nurses had incorrectly assembled the machine to be used during surgery. Instead of sucking in air, the machine blew out air. The surgeons, who had attended a three-day course to operate the machine, failed to recognize that they had filled the patient's body with air, resulting in her death.
