What is the name of your state? Illinois
The death occured July 29 2005. We signed with lawyer August 9, 2005, and case was filed in Fayette County on April 21, 2006. What comes next and how long does this process take. This was a routine gall bladder surgery and three cuts were made to the liver and the doctor only cauterized two, so he bled to death. This seems to have happen to this surgeon other times.
Thanks for any information you can provide us with.
