Case Results

Barbara Jackson v. Westlake Hospital

Verdict: $7,500,000

The plaintiff underwent endoscopic esophageal fundoplication surgery (“wrap procedure”) to treat intractable acid reflux disease, GERD, which failed to cause a permanent malpositioning of the stomach in the patient's chest.

The prior plaintiff's attorneys voluntarily dismissed the original case because unable to find a qualified surgical expert. The plaintiff's attorney Kurt Lloyd hired a nationally recognized biliary surgeon and re-filed the case alleging the defendant surgeon's improper intraoperative technique and suturing which caused the wrap to fail.
