Ms. Jane Doe underwent liposuction at the Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale in 2000. During the procedure, Jane's intestine was unknowingly pierced, causing toxic waste to spread through her body for nearly two weeks before it was discovered.
Jane's infection and perforated intestine required extensive surgeries and hospitalizations over the next year. Over time, because Jane was bedridden for so long, she developed bedsores and circulatory problems. The damage required the amputation of both legs.
The case was settled for $3 million.
