Surgeon Negligence

Surgeon Negligence Claims

Skilled Tampa Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Surgery is a scary concept and something that everyone hopes to avoid in their lifetime. Unfortunately, these fears are well-grounded since there have been many cases of surgical error and medical malpractice. Surgeons must undergo extensive education, training, and testing before they are granted their medical licenses. Even so, one instance of negligence could result in serious injury or illness—or even wrongful death—for a patient who goes under their knife.

If you believe that you or someone you know has a case for a medical malpractice claim due to surgical negligence, speak with a Tampa injury lawyer from Smith & Stallworth, Attorneys at Law today.

Types of Surgical Errors

Surgeries have countless ways in which mistakes can be made, many of which can be extremely costly to the patient. Hire a lawyer right away if you have been the victim of any of the following errors:

  • Anesthesia errors
  • Contaminated instruments
  • Improper suturing
  • Internal or excessive bleeding
  • Foreign object left inside the patient
  • Wrong site or wrong side surgery
  • Wrong surgical procedure

Each of these mistakes can be easily prevented by a focused and well-trained surgeon. That is why you as the patient have every right to demand compensation for complications caused by negligence. Your health has been jeopardized and, in some cases, you may never return to the lifestyle you had before. Contact a skilled personal injury lawyer immediately to learn what steps you can take to obtain compensation.

Taking on the Hospitals in a Claim

Medical malpractice claims are not easy to pursue without capable representation. When doctors and surgeons face liability, their medical license is at stake. If they are found guilty of malpractice, they could have their license revoked by the medical board. Because of these stakes, they will deny liability more often than not and will use their extensive resources to fight your claim.

That is why you must retain an aggressive and experienced medical malpractice attorney from Smith & Stallworth, Attorneys at Law. We have the knowledge and experience to take on the doctors, surgeons, and hospitals, as well as the big insurance companies, in order to recover the damages you've suffered.
