An Experienced Attorney Advocating for Your Interests
Surgical errors can have drastic implications for the individual, causing lifelong or permanent disabilities. Surgeons have a duty to protect his or her patient and provide services that fully meet the standard of care. Unfortunately, the carelessness of others becomes an unfortunate reality all too often. Serious injuries and illnesses can come as the result of:
- Botched procedures: This can include orthopedic, back, hip or knee surgeries. A botched surgery can lead to other injuries such as internal bleeding or nerve damage.
- Foreign objects left in the body post-procedure: Including towels, instruments and other types of objects.
- Failure to care/monitor for patients post-recovery
- Surgery errors due to overworked or drowsy surgeons
