Connecticut Hospital Ordered to Pay Medical Malpractice Victim $12 Million

Posted by Connecticut Accident News | Jun 03, 2014 | 0 Comments

Danbury Hospital has been ordered to pay $12 million to the victim of a botched surgery which occurred in 2008, according to recent reports. The patient, 65-year old Vivian Gagliano, was undergoing a routine hernia operation when the surgeon performing the procedure punctured her colon, causing her to go into a coma and eventually requiring the removal of most of her large intestine.

In 2010, Gagliano filed suit against the hospital and two of its doctors, alleging that they failed to recognize the damage they'd done until after closing the surgical area, causing Gagliano to suffer infection and septic shock which endangered her life and led to the drastic step of organ removal. The jurors took only 3 ½ hours to deliberate before finding in favor of the plaintiff.
