On April 11, a jury in Jefferson County, Alabama awarded compensation for a wrongful death lawsuit dating back to December, 2008. The victim, Alan Hager, visited the hospital several times with complaints of severe pain in his gallbladder. What should have been a single visit to the hospital resulted in several admissions and discharges, until ultimately, he died during his third stay.

The court determined that Hager died because his gallbladder needed to be removed, but the presiding surgeon continually elected to postpone the procedure. Unable to justify his rationale, the surgeon lost his case against Hager’s widow.

After her husband’s death, Ms. Hager filed her complaint in December, 2010, citing negligence. While the original complaint named about a dozen other doctors and practices, the recent verdict named only the presiding surgeon and Birmingham Surgical, P.C. as the guilty parties.

Perpetrators of medical malpractice should always face the legal consequences of their actions, and a medical malpractice lawyer can hold them accountable. You and your loved ones should never be victimized by the doctors your trust with your health and your lives.

With a medical malpractice attorney’s assistance, victims may receive millions in recompense. And while this compensation can never heal the pain of a tragic loss, you should never remain silent when you suspect irresponsible medical practices that could harm other patients in the future.

If you suspect medical malpractice, abuse or neglect by a medical professional, contact an injury lawyer for information and assistance.
