Surgery is already a rather frightening thing, as the surgeon has to be very careful and precise with every movement that they make. What is considered routine could go wrong fairly quickly and lead to severe injury or even death. It is the job of the surgeon and the surgical team to ensure that everything goes right. If you have had surgery and everything didn’t go right, then you may be able to hold all of those involved accountable for their mistake when it has caused you to become injured or disabled.
When a surgical error is made, the complications can take weeks or months to recover from. Other times, they result in a lifelong change. At Farrish Johnson Law Office, we are dedicated to working on your behalf so that you can receive the monetary compensation that you deserve for a surgical error done to you.
We focus on all aspects of the case. We look at all parties involved in the surgery from the doctor and his or her team to the hospital where the procedure was performed. The doctors and their hospitals are protected with liability insurance in case something goes wrong. You may be eligible for a settlement from the insurance company. If the settlement is not enough, then we will stand by you through every step of a trial.
Helping You Gain Financial Compensation For Your Recovery
You have medical bills and other financial liabilities that may have resulted from the error. For instance, you may not be able to work or you lost wages because of having to be away from work. There are also the present and future medical expenses, as well as the pain and suffering that you have experienced. We will help you obtain financial compensation if any of the following occurred:
- Wrongful death
- Injection errors
- Infections at the site of surgery
- Injection therapy complications
- Instrument left inside patient
- Nerve damage
- Performing surgery on the wrong site
- Excessive bleeding
- Medication errors
- Anesthesia errors
It may not seem like a surgeon could make such an error, but they do happen nearly every day. While every person may not have the perfect day, the surgeon has a job to make sure everything is right.
