When a patient is preparing for surgery, he or she might have many thoughts about the procedure. While it is very natural to worry, most patients feel confident in their doctor's skills and experience. Surgeons are highly trained and educated professionals — most people trust in this. When a surgical error occurs, patients and their families are often left to wonder, "How did this mistake happen? Do I have any legal rights and options?"
I have been a lawyer in Louisville, Kentucky, for more than 25 years. People throughout the state turn to my law firm when they are facing very difficult situations due to surgical errors. I take pride in the one-on-one attention I provide to my clients and the dedication I have toward securing compensation for their losses. I have obtained multimillion-dollar results for previous clients and frequently receive referrals from other attorneys.
Did You Or A Loved One Sustain An Injury Due To Surgeon Malpractice?
Surgical errors can result in death as well as:
- Blood clots
- Brain damage
- Infections and post-surgical infections
- Nerve damage
- Organ damage
- Vision loss
Surgeries take place across all fields of medicine from vascular to oncology to obstetrics and gynecology. Whether you were injured during childbirth, during a procedure on your abdomen, or while undergoing plastic surgery, I will use my knowledge and ample resources to build a strong claim on your behalf.
In my experience, I have found that surgical errors happen during the procedure or in the post-operative stage. Errors can involve:
- Performing the wrong procedure
- Performing surgery on the wrong body part
- Leaving surgical instruments inside the patient's body
- Puncturing or cutting an organ
- Anesthesia errors — oversedation or undersedation
If an injury or death in your family was caused by a surgeon's failure to follow the standard of care, please talk to me and learn more about how I can help you.
