Mr. Fulda and Mr. Whetstone represented the estate of a married nurse who died after her small bowel was cut by an OB-GYN during surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes.  Mr. Fulda and Mr. Whetstone were able to show that the OB-GYN and nursing staff failed to recognize signs and symptoms of a bowel perforation and take appropriate action to correct the injury.  This medical malpractice wrongful death case was resolved shortly before trial for $731,000.
