Lesiones: Muerte injusta
The plaintiff was a 30-year-old man who had gastric bypass surgery for obesity. After surgery, the defendant surgeon discovered a leak at the site of the bypass, but decided to wait to determine if the leak would repair itself. The patient developed an infection, and his condition worsened. When the decision was finally made to re-operate on the patient, he was too ill to survive the surgery and died on the operating room table.
The plaintiff charged the defendant with negligently failing to respond to the leak more quickly and allowing the patient to worsen and die.
