Types of Surgical Injuries
Almost all surgery is traumatic, and most organs and internal systems are reliant on the health of other parts of the body. The exceedingly wide range of surgeries performed today in addition to their many possible complications almost always means no two surgical injury cases are the same. Most surgical injuries, however, can be attributed to:
- Surgery performed on the wrong part of the body
- Unnecessary surgeries
- Surgical tool negligence
- Sanitary preparation negligence
- Premature patient discharge
- Unnecessary surgery delay
- Foreign objects left in patient
- Failure to notify patient of all risks
- Negligent damage to unrelated body parts
- Inattentive care
Our attorneys have experience handling a wide variety of cases in which these negligent actions have caused serious, lasting, and even fatal damage. We work closely with physicians from all medical specialties who provide honest opinions and testify for our clients on a regular basis. After reviewing you or your loved one’s medical records, a surgical injury attorney from our firm can immediately begin to build a claim.
Immediate and Lasting Effects of Surgical Injuries
For many victims of surgical injuries, life is never the same. Victims are often faced with a whole new injury or revised treatment plan that requires more time, pain, and expense. New conditions, diseases, and necessary lifestyle changes can affect these victims on a daily basis, and can be even more serious for senior patients.
Lasting damage can include paralysis, chronic pain, and limited function in everyday tasks. Our attorneys have a desire to help victims pursue justice for these unwanted changes to their lives. You and your loved ones deserve significant compensation for the often permanent effects of these injuries.
