NEWARK, N.J., April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company which operates lawsuitssettlementfunding.com, reported today that a New London jury recently awarded $1.8 million to a woman who was rendered infertile after a doctor cut the wrong fallopian tube during a medical procedure.
In May of 2011, according to an article in The Day, Rebecca Simonds, 28 at the time, went to the hospital complaining of pelvic pain on her right side. She was then admitted, and doctors weren't sure whether the pain was due to appendicitis or an infection. She underwent an appendectomy, which was performed by a different surgeon, but the accused doctor came into the operating room and started to perform surgery on an abscess of Simonds' right fallopian tube. According to the article, the doctor involved had never performed this type of surgery, and realized something wasn't right. Simonds' family was then told that the wrong fallopian tube had been cut during the procedure.
As a result, Rebecca Simonds has been "rendered infertile." She had to have an additional surgical procedure, and is attempting to conceive through in-vitro fertilization.
The medical malpractice claim was brought by Rebecca Simonds and her husband, Charles Simonds, against a doctor who was "18 months out of her residency when she performed the procedure at Lawrence + Memorial Hospital in 2011."
The jury deliberated for about three hours before they returned the verdict for the plaintiff. She was awarded $1.3 million for non-economic damages, $190,000 for medical expenses, and $310,000 for her husband's loss of consortium.
