Recognizing A Surgical Error
Should You File A Medical Malpractice Claim?
Did you or a loved one go in for surgery, only to have your medical condition made worse by the negligence of the surgeon or operating room staff? If you have suffered medical malpractice, you have the right to take action and seek compensation for past, present and future damages and losses related to your injury.
At Kammholz Rossi PLLC, our lawyers have over 35 years of combined legal experience bringing our core values of knowledge, honesty, compassion, diligence and creativity to medical malpractice cases involving mistakes during surgery.
Possible Surgery Errors Caused By Negligence Are Numerous
Errors can happen in surgeries of all types, including carpal tunnel surgery and abdominal surgeries such as gallbladder removal surgery and ovarian surgery.
Errors can come in many forms. Some errors are blatant examples of negligence, such as leaving sponges and other surgical implements in the body after surgery. Other errors include perforating your intestines, bowel (colon), other internal organs or structures, or injuring your nerves. Often, the negligence of the surgeon is failing to see or find the injury caused before closing you back up to conclude the surgery.
Even a relatively small error can have devastating consequences. Nerve damage or organ perforation can lead to significant internal damage or infections.
Our attorneys take action against surgeons and operating room staff members who cause serious problems because of their negligence, and we are fully capable of holding New York hospitals and health systems accountable for surgical malpractice, including:
- Cataract surgery injuries
- Carpal tunnel surgery injuries
- Gallbladder removal injuries
- Bowel perforation during surgery
