Las Vegas woman files lawsuit against doctors, others after allegedly contracting flesh-eating bacteria

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A Las Vegas woman has filed a lawsuit against a doctor and others after she says she contracted a life-threatening flesh-eating bacteria.

According to a news release from Battle Born Injury Lawyers, who are representing Ashleigh Cope in her case against Dr. Christopher Khorsandi of VIP Plastic Surgery, the woman allegedly contracted Necrotizing Fasciitis.

Attorney Matthew Hoffman said in the release that on behalf of Cope, they are also filing claims against ER at Green Valley Ranch and Henderson Hospital for the delayed treatment of Cope’s life-threatening condition.

According to the release, on Nov. 26, 2019, Cope received minor corrective surgery by Dr. Khorsandi under local anesthesia at VIP Plastic Surgery.

Cope reportedly experienced pain and nausea immediately following the procedure and was given IV fluids at VIP Plastic Surgery, the release states. "It was later recommended by Dr. Khorsandi that she visit ER at Green Valley Ranch for further treatment."
