When you go into surgery, you place your trust in the hands of the physician and staff who have been trained to provide the treatment and cure that you need. There is strict protocol in place to ensure that your health and safety are protected during the procedure. Any deviation from that protocol can trigger human error or mistakes that can be costly and devastating.
Types Of Surgical Malpractice
At the Shanks Law Firm, we advocate for patients who have been hurt by surgeon error or by the negligence or irresponsibility of physicians and hospital staff. After the error, these patients are left to deal with the sometimes life-altering results, often feeling as if there is no recourse for what has occurred. We are there to fight on your behalf to achieve closure and compensation for your pain.
Surgical errors are shocking and can include:
- Surgery performed needlessly due to a misdiagnosis
- Infection following the surgery due to physician or staff error
- Overdose of anesthesia
- Surgeries performed on the wrong person or body part
- Foreign objects accidentally left within the body
- Negligent preoperative planning
- Prolonged surgeries
These mistakes can be traced back to a variety of causes, including physician fatigue, breach of procedure or simply the negligence of hospital staff and doctors. Whatever the cause, the results are lasting and devastating.
We work with an extensive network of health care professionals, doctors and physicians to carefully assess the damage that has been done. We will build a detailed case on your behalf, holding accountable the professionals who are responsible for your added pain and suffering.
