Surgery is one of the most powerful tools available in modern medicine, but most procedures are so complicated that there are many opportunities for human error. We rely on competent surgeons and other medical practitioners to execute these procedures without creating new medical problems, but mistakes do happen from time to time.
When these are caused by the negligence of someone operating on you, you have a right to hold them accountable for an avoidable error that has caused you harm.
At Ratton Law Group PC, we understand the implications of medical malpractice as both attorneys and as nurses, because we have training in both disciplines. If you’ve suffered an injury during surgery, we can help you assess the strength of your case and prepare the documentation necessary to hold the negligent party accountable. The legal system cannot restore your health on its own, but we are committed to helping you obtain the financial compensation to which you are entitled, which can help defray the medical costs incurred by your injury.
Surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists and other medical practitioners involved in surgery have the potential to make a wide range of errors, including:
Foreign objects left in the body
Failure to get appropriate consent for a given procedure
Failure to get informed consent as to the full range of possible outcomes during a procedure
Performing the wrong procedure
Performing the right procedure at the wrong site
Supplying insufficient oxygen
Damage to surrounding tissue
If you or a loved one has been harmed during a surgical procedure, it’s important to speak with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. To schedule a consultation with Ratton Law Group PC, just call 313-825-6601 or contact us online.
