Thomas Saieva and Lesley Stine Obtain a Defense Verdict in Medical Malpractice Case
Thomas Saieva and Lesley Stine tried a case in which it was alleged that the plaintiff sustained a perforated bowel after a laparoscopic procedure. The case involved extended care in nursing homes, and hospitals for an 11 year period. The case was supported by the testimony of excellent experts, including a GYN/Oncologist and pathologist. The defendant physician received a defense verdict. The jury concluded that the defendant physician had not perforated bowel, but rather the perforation was a result of a compromised bowel from a prior hernia repair with mesh.
