Medical malpractice: Surgical mistakes directly affect patients

There is a certain level of risk involved with any medical procedure. Surgeries require precision and constant focus from providers, otherwise patients can be seriously injured or even killed. Every day across the country, thousands of people undergo surgical procedures and place their lives in the hands of physicians and surgeons. When these medical professionals make a mistake, or fail to do their jobs correctly, the patient suffers the consequences. Fortunately, Kentucky families who have suffered due to medical malpractice have options available to help them get through this difficult experience.

A woman in another state filed a lawsuit after an eye procedure allegedly left her with permanent injuries. According to the lawsuit, the woman underwent a surgery to repair a cataract in her right eye. Allegedly, the surgeon who performed the procedure did not position the lens correctly in the plaintiff's right eye.

The plaintiff claims this left her with loss of vision, sensitivity to light and burning pain. The woman says she also had to endure another surgery to fix the problem. The plaintiff wants to hold the surgeon responsible for her alleged injuries and seeks damages in excess of $50,000.

Just one mistake during surgery, no matter how minor, can have drastic and catastrophic effects on a patient. Kentucky families who have had to endure loss or hardships due to medical malpractice or negligent care may want to consider discussions with a legal representative. A lawsuit, if successful, could result in a substantial monetary award to supply victims and families with much-needed financial relief.
