- Settlement: $800,000
- Practice Areas: Medical Malpractice
Mr. Makowicz represented a 58-year-old woman who sustained a perforation of the esophagus in the course of a gastric sleeve bypass surgery, a known risk of the surgery. However, subsequent treatment with both stents and surgical management caused an injury to a nerve, which controls digestive functions, resulting in our client’s inability to process food and severe nausea/vomiting.
