By Thomas Kallies | Oct 11, 2013

PRINCETON - Bernice Wayne Janutolo Jr., individually and as administrator of the Estate of Carolyn S. Janutolo, has filed suit in the Circuit Court of Mercer County on Sept. 29, naming Michael Hegstrom, M.D., as the defendant.

Bernice Janutolo claims her mother Carolyn Janutolo was negligently treated by Dr. Hegstrom on and after July 8, 2011.

Specifically, Bernice Janutolo alleges Hegstrom failed to timely and properly asses Carolyn Janutolo's post-operative internal bleeding and hemorrhage.

Bernice Janutolo claims Hegstrom failed to provide additional and necessary surgical treatment to Carolyn Janutolo so as to properly treat the source of the hemorrhage and enable her to become hemodynamically stable.

According to Bernice Janutolo, Dr. Hegstrom's negligence was the cause of her mother's death for which she now seeks damages.

Janutolo is seeking an undisclosed amount in damages. She is represented by attorney Robert P. Welsh of the Masters Law Firm.
