Family plans to sue surgeon for liposuction procedure that caused death of woman

The Florida family of a woman who died after receiving liposuction is planning to sue the surgeon who performed the surgery, citing that he caused the woman to have an embolism, resulting in her death.

The 35-year-old woman underwent liposuction to remove fat on her body. According to reports, the surgeon accidentally injected fat into the woman’s blood stream. Shortly after, the woman suffered an embolism and died.

The family of the woman stated that the surgeon performed the surgery in a negligent manner, however, the surgeon’s attorneys stated that the woman was informed of the risk of embolism prior to undergoing the surgery.

If you or someone you love has suffered complications after surgery, please contact the Charleston post-surgery complications lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800.
