We Pursue Justice For Surgical Errors
Going through even the most minor surgery can be an emotional, frightening time. You expect the outcome to be positive and to be on the road to recovery. But negligence on the part of your surgeon or other medical staff can lead to major health problems you didn’t expect.
The medical malpractice lawyers of Raymond & Raymond, Ltd., understand how serious an unexpected surgical outcome can be, especially if the professional you trusted is negligent. For over 28 years, we have represented victims of surgical errors seek the financial compensation they deserve.
Common Types Of Surgical Mistakes
Our lawyers have seen these common types of surgical errors:
- Wrong structure cut during surgery
- Equipment malfunction resulting in uncontrolled bleeding and death
- Blood pressure allowed to become too low resulting in brain damage
- Nerve injury during surgery to areas not involved in surgery
- Anesthesia errors
- Complications from surgery, such a bleeding, not promptly discovered and corrected resulting in patient death
Examples of Surgical Error Cases
We have helped numerous patients seek financial compensation due to medical malpractice including surgical errors. Here are some examples of the types of Surgical Error cases:
- A surgeon injured the liver and bile ducts during a laparoscope gall bladder removal, causing severe infection and permanent liver injury to a 28-year-old. This required a second operation and prolonged hospitalization.
- A 5-year-old patient was badly burned during surgery when the surgeon ignited an alcohol solution with a cautery device.
- A surgeon cut a structure before identifying the structure, resulting in a 42-year-old patient’s massive bleed, nerve damage and paralysis.
- Immediately after surgery, an anesthesiologist took a 45-year-old patient off a ventilator too soon, causing hypoxic brain injury.
- During a cesarean section delivery, an anesthesiologist and CRNA allowed a mother’s blood pressure to remain dangerously low, causing brain damage, multisystem organ damage and death a day later.
- A surgeon waited too long to operate on a 78-year-old patient with a small intestine obstruction resulting in death of the small intestine and a massive infection which killed the patient.
- After appendix surgery, a 32-year-old began to bleed into his abdomen, but the doctors and nurses did not notice until the patient suffered an arrest and died.
