Philadelphia Surgical Error Lawyers
Most surgeries are performed safely and without complications. We are fortunate to live in an era of medical advances that save lives and improve the quality of life for the millions of people who undergo surgical procedures every year.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to completely eliminate risk during an operation. Even the most carefully controlled environment is not entirely risk-free. A doctor’s mistake, a hospital’s negligence, or an anesthesiologist’s error can lead to a life-threatening complication on the operating table or during the postoperative period.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a surgical error, the Philadelphia medical malpractice lawyers at LawMD can help. Because many of our lawyers are also highly trained medical doctors and surgeons, our team has the experience and skill to obtain the maximum compensation available in your case.
Why Do Surgical Mistakes Happen?
Even the most straightforward surgery involves a team of doctors, nurses, scrub techs, and other medical staff. Surgeries also involve numerous steps. A moment’s lapse in concentration, an overtired doctor, a charting error, or a simple miscommunication can lead to a tragic complication.
Our surgical error attorneys have handled a wide variety of cases, including cases involving:
- Anesthesia errors
- Unsanitary surgical instruments
- Poorly trained surgical techs
- Failure to monitor after surgery
- Doctor’s failure to follow up after surgery
- Lack of monitoring during surgery
- Wrong site surgery
- Unnecessary surgery
- Wrong patient surgery
- Instrument or sponge left behind
In many cases, surgical mistakes force a patient to undergo additional surgeries to correct a mistake or health complication. In other cases, a patient spends months or even years dealing with the aftermath of a surgical error. These patients are often told their pain and symptoms are normal, or that they are imagining things or being difficult.
Because many of our lawyers are also medical doctors, we know firsthand what medical malpractice patients go through. Being treated like a “frequent flyer” or a “complainer” in a doctor’s office or hospital is not something anyone should have to endure, especially when you know something is wrong. We will listen to you, and we will help you get the compassionate care and full compensation you deserve.
Feel Confident with Your Choice of Lawyer
There are many law firms that practice in the area of medical malpractice. There are comparatively few firms with the breadth of education, skill, and clinical training found at LawMD. Our lawyers are widely recognized for their contributions to the fields of law and medicine. Many of our attorneys are respected physicians, surgeons, and educators in the medical field.
Going up against the medical establishment can be a daunting prospect. Hospitals are some of the largest businesses in the world. They are massive bureaucratic organizations that are in the business of making a profit. They are also backed by multinational insurance companies that have one goal: minimizing the value of your claim or denying it entirely. Sadly, many patients give up before their case has even begun. They worry about looking foolish, or being told they are wasting their time.
Medical malpractice cases are among the most complex personal injury cases in the civil justice system. You may have been told that winning your case is a longshot. With us on your side, you have much more than a fighting chance – you have the confidence and peace of mind that comes with knowing your litigation team understands both the medical and legal aspects of your case.
