Injuries Caused by Surgical Malpractice
Any surgery carries risks, but what happens when a surgeon, anesthesiologist or other medical professional involved in a procedure makes a mistake? Can you hold them accountable for their actions? The Medler Law Firm offers experienced legal counsel to patients throughout Orange County and the St. Louis area who have been injured as the result of surgical malpractice of any kind. Our team possesses more than 50 years of collective legal experience and extensive resources to apply to these cases and will conduct a careful investigation to uncover the specific act of negligence that caused your surgical injury to occur.
Types of Surgical Errors and Injuries
Surgeon or medical staff negligence can lead to a variety of mistakes and injuries on the operating table, including:
- Failure to recognize potential risk or react to a mistake, putting the patient at risk
- Using the wrong anesthesia or using too much, which can cause brain damage or fatality
- Performing the wrong surgery, such as bypass the wrong artery in a bypass operation
- Infection from an incision that is not properly cleaned or closed
- Leaving a medical sponge or instrument inside of the body
You have a far greater opportunity to recover financial compensation with a knowledgeable attorney by your side to determine liability for your injuries and present your case in a clear and compelling manner than if you try to handle your case on your own. These are highly technical cases that need to be handled with the utmost care. Medical professionals have attorneys and insurance companies who are very good at countering medical malpractice claims – you need aggressive and experienced legal representation of your own.
