Negligence lawsuit involving Lexington Medical Center

A negligence lawsuit involving Lexington Medical Center has been issued a new trial. It all came to play after a prominent doctor, Dr. Asif Sheikh, died while in the care of Lexington Medical Center and one of its anesthesiologists. Prosecutors said Sheikh was not properly monitored after he had double knee-replacement surgery at the hospital back in 2002. The 58-year-old physician died less than a day after the surgery. A Lexington County jury awarded the family $30 million.
