When Surgery Becomes a Nightmare

New Medical Issues After Surgery

Imagine this: you go in to have
surgery, and the surgery for your original problem goes fine; however, you come
out of the surgery with an entirely new issue. 
Unfortunately, doctors make mistakes and there is a possibility for a
medical mistake to lead to a completely different set of problems for a
patient.  These problems could range from
being minor and treatable at home to something more serious that results in a
serious medical condition or requires another surgery or ultimately, leads to
that patient’s immediate death.  As an
example, a doctor has a patient on the surgical table and they lose grip of
their tool and accidentally cut a patient’s nerve which causes an array of
neurological issues in the patient’s arm. 

Possible Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

In the case above, a malpractice lawsuit
could be a possibility, but these types of cases require a very certain type of
expertise to successfully prove that the doctor or hospital was at fault for a
patient’s damages.  One of the most
common hurdles that attorneys run into regarding this type of case is when the
physician notes that the patient has been advised as to and consents to the
risks of the procedure, rendering the physician and hospital off the hook if
things go wrong.  Similarly, in some cases,
doctors can make mistakes, but they are expected to adhere to a specific standard
of care after the fact.  An experienced
attorney can help prove that just because the client was informed of the risks,
the physician should still be held accountable due to the egregious damages
sustained by the client.  Also, an
experienced attorney will have the knowledge to pinpoint the areas where a
doctor failed to uphold an adequate standard of care to a patient that they
injured.
