Widow Files Suit Against Doctor
The widow of a man who died of surgical errors at a Nose and Throat Clinic has filed a suit on her late husband’s behalf.
Surgery Gone Wrong
Estele Roseberry, 73, the widow of Paul Roseberry, has filed the lawsuit against Dr. Philip Fitzpatrick.
Roseberry underwent sinus surgery conducted by Dr. Fitzpatrick on December 2, 2005.
According to reports, during the surgery, Dr. Fitzpatrick put a hole through Paul Roseberry’s cribriform plate.
The cribriform plate is what separates the brain and the sinus cavity.
The mistake caused bleeding in Roseberry’s brain, which eventually caused brain pressure and respiratory failure.
Doctor Accused of Negligence
The lawsuit claims that Roseberry’s wrongful death was the result of Dr. Fitzpatrick’s negligence.
Documents state that Fitzpatrick should not have performed the operation on Roseberry when he should have known how difficult the surgery would be.
It also blames the surgeon for puncturing the cribriform plate.
Widow Seeking Compensation
Estele Roseberry is seeking special and general damages, along with the cost of the suit.
