Plaintiff alleged that the defendant bariatric surgeon was negligent during a procedure four years after her initial bariatric surgery, resulting in an aortic laceration. However, the defense argued that the injury was a tragic consequence of the patient’s significant weight loss and the changes in their body tissues due to malnourishment.

With Tom’s skillful and strategic defense, backed by the compelling testimony of our client and the expert opinion of another highly regarded bariatric surgeon, the jury swiftly delivered a resounding 5-1 verdict in favor of our client. 

Great job, Tom!
