Due to her high blood pressure and sickle cell anemia, our 33-year-old pregnant client underwent an emergency cesarean section. The baby was born healthy and without any complications. Post-surgery our client was considered stable and transferred to a regular room in the hospital. The next day she was found unresponsive and passed away. Working with co-counsel, we were able to hold the surgeon accountable for failing to properly close the surgical site. The case was handled by Managing Partner Andrew Finkelstein.
