October 21st, 2011 by Wapner Newman

Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Philadelphia, David Sternberg successfully represented a 47-year-old woman who was prematurely discharged from the hospital following abdominal surgery. The woman developed an infection after undergoing laparoscopic repair of a recurrent ventral hernia and was discharged before the infection was detected. The infection was caused by the implantation of an incorrectly-sized hernia mesh. Attorney Sternberg was able to obtain a $750,000 settlement for the woman.
