Death of Mother from Sepsis

Our client, a 68-year-old wife, and mother of four adult children died after contracting sepsis from a perforated bowel that occurred during umbilical hernia repair surgery. The hospital and physicians failed to recognize the sepsis and did not implement antibiotic treatment, which would have saved her life. While the settlement will not bring back the matriarch of this wonderful family, we were able to hold those responsible for her death accountable for their negligent care and treatment.
