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.
