Decatur Surgical Error Lawyers Demanding Justice For You
Our medical malpractice attorneys can fight for your rights
Surgeons undergo years of training to learn how to safely operate on patients with severe injuries or illnesses. Unfortunately, surgeons are not perfect. They sometimes make mistakes. When they do, the consequences can be serious. Instead of getting better, surgical errors can result in even more severe injuries or a much worse medical condition.
When this happens, it’s critical that you take strong legal action to hold the surgeon responsible for his or her actions. That’s our job, and our experienced Georgia surgical error lawyers at Kurle Justus, LLC, can help you every step of the way – from filling out forms to filing a surgical error lawsuit if necessary.
Our attorneys know what to do because we have years of experience handling medical malpractice cases involving surgical errors. One of our lawyers even worked in the healthcare field for 10 years as a respiratory therapist before becoming an attorney. That’s just one of the things that sets our law firm apart – our in-depth experience and commitment to our clients.
What are common surgical errors?
Surgical errors that result in serious injuries, illnesses or infections can cover a wide range. Some of the most common – and most serious – surgical errors we deal with at our law firm involve:
- Misdiagnosis errors before surgery
- Anesthesia errors during surgery
- Unnecessary surgical procedures
- Operating on the wrong part of the body
- Operating on the wrong patient
- Surgical instruments left inside the patient
- Unsanitary conditions in hospital, resulting in a serious infection
- Post-operative errors, including failure to monitor patient after surgery
Is this what happened to you or a loved one? Or are you dealing with a different type of surgical error? Whatever went wrong with you or your loved one, you can count on our law firm to fight for your rights every step of the way after your surgical error.
What makes surgical error cases complicated?
Surgical errors often turn into complex legal cases. Some of the reasons why include:
- The surgeon denies doing anything wrong.
- Other medical professionals present during surgery deny wrongdoing.
- Evidence related to your case no longer exists or has been intentionally destroyed.
- The surgeon claims your case involves an unrelated medical issue.
- The surgeon’s insurance company denies your medical malpractice claim.
The stakes are high when it comes to surgical error cases. Depending on several factors – including medical bills and lost income during recovery after surgery – the financial toll of a surgical error can quickly add up to thousands or even millions of dollars.
That’s why surgeons and hospitals often hire entire teams of attorneys to defend their actions. These tactics don’t intimidate us. We know how to investigate complex cases and find the evidence that matters. If they refuse to cooperate, we will not hesitate to file a surgical error lawsuit on your behalf.
