Weight loss surgeries are very effective for people who are struggling with obesity or having trouble losing weight through diet and exercise alone. There are many different types of bariatric procedures. All of them are major surgeries. If not everything goes as planned, it can lead to very serious injuries for you, the patient.
In 2009, we assisted as a paid legal consultant in the case preparation and mediation strategy of a $7,000,000 confidential settlement for a misconstructed Roux-en-Y surgery that left a woman with catastrophic and permanent injuries.

Mistakes Can Be Made Before, During, and After Surgery
Physicians can make mistakes evaluating you and your medical history before the surgery takes place. During the operation, the doctor could botch the surgery or fail to see warning signs that something is wrong. After a successful surgery, you could suffer infections and other post-operative problems.
We can represent you when complications occur at any point in your medical care involving the following weight loss surgeries:
- Roux-en-Y or gastric bypass surgery
