Confidential settlement – death of woman from surgical error

John Leighton recovered a confidential settlement from a major Miami hospital as a result of the death of a 32 year old woman who underwent spinal surgery.  During the course of a laminectomy the neurosurgeon lacerated her illiac artery and vein, causing a massive bleed and her death.  She was survived by her husband, who hired John Elliott Leighton to investigate and litigate this case.  The uninsured surgeon also contributed to the settlement.
