Compensation For Surgical Errors
When you go into surgery, you expect that you will be better after the surgery than you were before surgery. You likely would not agree to undergo surgery if you knew that you were subjecting yourself to permanent, debilitating injury or death. Even a minor surgical error can lead to serious complications, infections, serious illness or death.
At The Lawrence Firm, PSC, we are experienced in representing the victims and families of medical malpractice, including surgical errors. With offices in Covington, Kentucky, and Cincinnati, Ohio our lawyers have decades of experience and a shared commitment to fighting for victims of surgical errors and other forms of medical malpractice.
Injuries from surgical errors can have lifelong implications. Our firm is dedicated to assisting surgical error victims and their families to recover the compensation they are entitled to under the law.
Many surgical errors are caused by hospital negligence, failure to follow procedure, or negligence on the part of a doctor or assisting nurse. Due to the understaffing of hospitals, surgical errors and post-surgical complications are becoming increasingly common and can lead to permanent injury or death.
Many surgical errors are the result of the surgeon negligently operating outside of the anatomical boundaries or failing to recognize their own limitations. If a surgeon accidentally nicks or cuts another organ, the surgical error could lead to sepsis or another dangerous infection. Our attorneys will review the necessary medical documents to identify your injuries and pursue legal claims against all liable parties.
