VA Medical Center Settles Lawsuit for $500,000

Posted on January 5th, 2013 No Comments

A VA Medical Center in Cleveland recently settled a lawsuit with a veteran’s widow for $500,000 after he died from complications resulting from an error made in surgery. The victim,¬†Dewey Wise, worked as a truck driver, and sought medical attention to have a hernia repaired so that he could return to work.

Unfortunately, during his hernia surgery, the surgeon perforated his bowel, allowing the contents of Wise’s bowels to spill into his abdomen. Unfortunately, this medical mistake was not caught quickly enough, resulting in a serious infection and Wise’s death after a few months. His 59-year-old widow brought the suit against the VA Medical Center.
