Surgical errors can result in serious harm to a patient and may arise from:
- Errors related to anesthesia
- Wrong site surgery
- Inadvertent cutting
- Misuse of surgical tools
- Instruments left in the surgical site after surgery
- Injury to vital organs or body parts
- Post-surgical care
- Follow-up care
Surgical errors are completely preventable—and negligent doctors should be held accountable for their actions.
Of course, it can be difficult to determine if you’ve suffered as a result of a known risk of surgery or if you are victim of medical malpractice. If you suspect that negligence during or after surgery may have contributed to injuries you sustained, contact Donald A. Shapiro, Ltd to speak with a medical malpractice attorney. We will draw upon over 30 years of experience to investigate the circumstances surrounding your case to see if a doctor malpractice was a contributing factor in the results you experienced after surgery.
To establish a medical malpractice claim against a surgeon or hospital, we will work with our network of medical professionals, including qualified surgeons, to evaluate your medical records and determine if your surgeon was negligent in providing care before, during or after the procedure. If the standard of care was not met, you may be able to pursue a medical negligence claim.
