Have you or someone you know been the victim of surgical malpractice? Many surgical errors are completely preventable so long as your medical providers aren’t careless. If you or someone you love has experienced malpractice of any kind during a surgical procedure, contact Allen & Scofield Injury Lawyers, LLC to speak with our surgical malpractice lawyers today at (404) 419-6674. Our Atlanta medical malpractice lawyers can help you hold your negligent medical providers accountable for their negligence. Don’t suffer in silence.

What are the different types of surgical malpractice?

Some examples of surgery malpractice cases include:

  • Accidental damage to interior tissues, muscles, nerves, etc.
  • Avoidable infections
  • Anesthesia errors, such as when the patient’s allergies are overlooked
  • Leaving medical instruments inside of patients

Surgery malpractice can occur at any time during a medical procedure, whether it is cosmetic surgery, trauma surgery, or even a routine operation. Surgical malpractice is a very serious matter and should be promptly addressed while memories are fresh and before medical records have been lost.

Surgical malpractice cases are time-consuming and very expensive. Therefore, you should only proceed with your claim once it is thoroughly vetted by a surgical malpractice attorney.

The elements of your potential claim are as follows:

  • There was an existing doctor-patient relationship
  • The doctor was negligent
  • You were injured
  • The doctor’s negligence caused your injuries

Not every mistake that is made during a surgical procedure constitutes malpractice.
If a mistake occurred, but it did not fall below the medical standard of care, then your malpractice claim will not be successful. The definition of the standard of medical care is “the type and level of care an ordinary, prudent, health care professional, with the same training and experience, would provide under similar circumstances in the same community.” If the care you received fell below that level, and you were injured as a result, then you should seek the assistance of our legal team at Allen & Scofield Injury Lawyers, LLC. You may be able to recover compensation for your suffering and expenses.

Why Should I File a Surgical Malpractice Claim?

The compensation awarded in surgical malpractice cases is frequently much greater than the compensation awarded in auto accident cases because surgical malpractice injuries usually cause permanent impairment or death. Every case is different, though, so the only way to know what kind of compensation you could potentially recover is to contact our law firm and consult a skilled surgical malpractice attorney. Our legal team will evaluate your potential claim and advise you whether you should proceed. If you have experienced a surgical or medical error that injured you, you may be able to recover compensation for the following:

  • Past, present, and future medical bills
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Loss of consortium, love, and society

Defending Your Rights as a Medical Patient

When you have to undergo surgery, you justifiably expect to receive the safest, most effective treatment. When that doesn’t occur and you or your loved one is severely injured by a doctor or medical professional, you must hold them accountable for their misconduct. There are an alarming number of surgical malpractice cases that are never filed because victims didn’t know they had actionable claims.

When you contact our veteran personal injury attorneys, we will review your medical records and advise you whether we think you have a potential surgical malpractice case. If we do, we will have your file reviewed by an expert medical professional for a second opinion. If that expert medical professional agrees that your medical provider committed malpractice, you should strongly consider filing a lawsuit to recover compensation for the harms you suffered. If you hire our firm to litigate your lawsuit, we will work as hard as we can to help you obtain just compensation.

It is important not to wait, because surgical malpractice claims must be filed before the statute of limitations expires. Call and set up an appointment today with our law firm and find out how we can help you receive justice. (404) 419-6674.
