Do I Need an Incorrect Surgical Procedure Lawyer?

Many people must plan ahead for surgeries, taking time off of work, arranging childcare, hiring in-home assistance, and making many other considerations for their post-surgical healing. Unfortunately, these plans can be completely thwarted when a surgeon performs the incorrect procedure. The physical and financial burden of surgical errors can be devastating. A skilled malpractice lawyer can help patients fight back to ensure that they receive the compensation they need and deserve.

When hospitals fail patients, they must be held accountable. Hiring a lawyer to fight your case can ensure that the hospital answers for their mistakes. By taking legal action, the hospital will be that much more careful with their patients in the future. Your lawsuit may save future victims from suffering the same fate you have.

Many people believe that a lawyer will only complicate their situation, but in reality, hiring a lawyer can take the burden of complex legal battles off of victims. Representation by a knowledgeable malpractice attorney will allow you to focus on your recovery and your family’s needs. A lawyer can handle all of the details of your case and keep you updated on progress as needed, providing you and your family with much-needed relief. With a lawyer’s help, you are likely to receive far more money than you would on your own, and with far less stress.

Types of Incorrect Surgical Procedure Cases We Handle

A study supported by the Agency for Healthcare and Research Quality (AHRQ), posits that the rate of surgical errors is about 1 in 112,994 patients. This study looked at almost three million operations from 1984 to 2004. Because surgery is a decision that patients make out of necessity, they place a great amount of trust in their medical providers. When a surgeon or surgical team fails to provide an adequate level of care, patients can be left with serious medical bills and potentially life-threatening physical damage.

If a patient is the victim of an incorrect surgical procedure, the following is likely to occur:

  • The initial medical issue remains unaddressed
  • Healthy tissue, muscle, and bone are exposed to undue trauma
  • There is an extended recovery time

These and other consequences of incorrect surgical procedures can cause victims’ existing issues to worsen and new issues to appear. Dealing with these consequences can be expensive, time-consuming, and stressful. In tragic cases, some victims even die as a result of their incorrect surgical procedures. Sampson Law Firm can help you and your family recover financial compensation for whatever consequences you have suffered as a result of your incorrect surgical procedure.
