Our Kaiser personal injury team represented a 56-year-old man who suffered permanent damage to his heart during a minimally invasive cardiac procedure. The patient was placed on cardiopulmonary bypass during heart surgery for eight hours. Our attorneys prove that the patient should not be on the bypass machine for more than 90 minutes. The extra time on the bypass machine during the surgery cost permanent heart damage, resulting in the need for a heart transplant. A confidential seven-figure settlement was achieved on behalf of the client.
