Complications from Improper Suturing

If an improperly sutured wound reopens, it can invite a host of complications requiring further medical treatment, potentially making your condition worse. Some of the common issues arising from improper suturing by a medical professional include:

  • Chronic or continued bleeding — Some bleeding may be expected following a traumatic injury, but an improperly sutured wound may bleed more severely or faster than it would if the wound had been sutured correctly.
  • Delayed healing — Improper suturing may lead to a delay in healing, which can cause you to miss additional work or hamper daily activities.
  • Disease or infection — Especially in cases where the wound reopens, improper suturing can make you more susceptible to infectious diseases that can enter your body through exposed skin.
  • Increased scarring — If the wound reopens or the wound area becomes larger from the suturing technique used, the resulting scar may be more significant and require cosmetic or other additional surgery.

These and other complications can lead to additional medical expenses and other losses for you and your family. Through a surgical errors claim, we can help you recover financial compensation to pay for your additional medical expenses and lost wages from additional time missed at work, as well as to make up for any disfigurement, pain, and suffering you may endure.
