Postoperative Negligence Lawyer
Serving Clients throughout Maryland, DC, Pennsylvania and Georgia
Although most surgeries are quite safe, most people are understandably apprehensive about undergoing a surgical procedure. It’s normal to feel anxious about putting your life in the hands of a surgical team. For many patients, it’s the loss of control and consciousness that makes surgery so intimidating. You’re never more vulnerable than you are during a surgery.
Medical negligence is now the third leading cause of death in the United States, and many of these deaths occur during surgery and in the period immediately following a surgery. Hospitals are busy places, and many doctors have too many patients to truly spend quality time following up with each one after a surgery. Far too often, patients get shuttled to the side after a surgery, where they are not properly monitored for possible complications.
At LawMD, we help victims of postoperative negligence in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and the surrounding areas. Our lawyers also assist families who have lost a loved one due to a hospital’s negligence or a doctor’s mistake after surgery. For decades, our clients have trusted us to help them get the compensation and closure they deserve after a postoperative error.
Why We’re Different
There are many law firms who say they accept medical malpractice cases. Many of these firms are personal injury law firms who take the occasional medical negligence case. At LawMD, medical malpractice is all we do. Not only are we highly skilled lawyers, many of our attorneys are also physicians and clinical practitioners. We know the law, and we also have the education and experience to understand medicine from a clinician’s point of view. These are qualities we put to work for our clients. Medical malpractice cases are the most complicated and technical of all personal injury cases. When your health and your financial security are at stake, shouldn’t you trust your case to physician-attorneys who have dedicated their lives to this type of work?
The hours and days following a surgical procedure are just as critical as the surgery itself. It’s imperative that hospitals, doctors, and nurses monitor patients for signs of infection and other serious complications, such as blood clots, respiratory distress, and bleeding.
The Washington, D.C. medical malpractice lawyers at LawMD have helped thousands of patients who have suffered postoperative complications due to a doctor’s negligence. We handle all types of postoperative negligence cases, including:
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Pneumonia and related complications
- Wound dehiscence
- Incisional hernia
- Hospital-acquired infection
- Paralytic ileus
We have also helped people who have required a second surgery or other procedures to correct health conditions that developed due to a lack of adequate care following an initial operation.
Because many of our lawyers have a background in medicine, we know how frustrating it is for a patient to experience complications following a surgery. In many cases, patients don’t get the help they need, either because doctors explain their symptoms or simply ignore their concerns. If you have been brushed off or told it’s all in your head, we will fight for justice on your behalf. Postoperative negligence is something no one should ever have to endure. Rest assured, we will make sure you and your family get compensated for your injuries.
