The high price of a surgical mistake

When a surgery goes wrong, it can leave an innocent patient in excruciating pain, with detrimental physical damage and facing a longer recovery. Surgical errors are quite serious, and victims have the right to hold doctors and care providers accountable for preventable mistakes that caused them great physical and emotional pain and suffering.

If you or a loved one were the victim of any type of medical malpractice, you would be wise to seek the help of a Florida attorney who can identify your legal options and help you pursue the compensation you deserve. Your legal ally can help protect your rights when malpractice or a surgical mistake takes a toll on your life.

How to know if you have a case after a surgical error

Not every medical mistake is grounds for a personal injury claim. However, you may have a case if there is evidence that the mistake was blatant, avoidable and the result of negligence. You may consider moving forward with a civil claim if you experienced any of the following:

  • Surgical errors that resulted in damage to internal organs
  • Surgery on the wrong site
  • Performing the wrong procedure
  • Errors with anesthesia
  • Leaving medical instruments or medical items inside the patient
  • Post-operative infection 

In some cases, medical mistakes are more than just mistakes. They are inexcusable lapses in judgment or blatant negligence. If you move forward with a civil claim based on medical malpractice, you must prove the following of the doctor:

  • Owed patient quality care
  • Caused injury to patient because of his or her deviation from the acceptable standard of care 

Your case must be able to provide evidence of the connection between the actions of the doctor, the surgical error and the subsequent pain and suffering you experienced as the result of your injury.

The high cost of medical malpractice

Medical malpractice physically, emotionally and financially drains both a patient and his or her family. Figuring out what to do next after learning that an error occurred during your surgery can be a daunting prospect, but a beneficial first step is to seek the guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney.

With the right legal support, you may be able to hold liable parties accountable for medical malpractice and its disastrous effects on your life. If you believe that you may deserve financial compensation, you have no time to lose in protecting your rights and interests.
