Our Attorneys Can Help You With Sub-Standard Care:
Below acceptable standard care can cause serious injury or even death. Unfortunately, surgical errors are more common than you might think. It is estimated that each year thousands of people are injured due to surgical accidents.
The following are some examples of typical surgical mistakes for which you should contact medical malpractice lawyers.
- Failure to diagnose: This means that the physician did not consider the possibility of the disease or problem when he should have and assured the chance to diagnose in time to prevent them.
- Delay in diagnosis: A doctor may be too busy, or may not recognize the disease present or does not care enough to proceed quickly to treatment or surgery.
- Surgical misidentification: This means a surgeon did not properly identify the anatomy and cut tissues that should not have been touched but should have been protected.
- Surgical complications unrecognized: Sometimes a surgeon does not consider that his surgery was less successful than he had hoped, and fails to appreciate that a patient who has a complication needs immediate attention.
- Nursing negligence: This can include a failure to monitor and assess a patient’s symptoms that, then go unreported or it can include an egregious error in providing fluids or medication.
