When a Nicked Artery or Organ Is a Sign of Medical Malpractice
People trust their surgeons to perform work without error, but this does not always happen. According to Harvard researchers, hundreds of thousands of people fall victim to medical malpractice each year in America. Many of these are people who enter surgery, only to find their lives permanently changed by a surgical error.
At The Donahey Law Firm, in Ohio, we represent surgical error victims and their families in medical malpractice litigation and negotiation. Our team of experienced attorneys, paralegals and support staff have been focusing on helping clients put forward a strong case for compensation since we started practicing law in 1968. We continue to pursue these results with each case we accept.
Many of the medical malpractice cases we handle involve nicked/cut arteries or vital organs. These serious surgical errors happen when surgeons perform work below the accepted standard of care. Many of these injuries happen when inexperienced doctors take on surgery that is too complex instead of sending it out to more experienced doctors elsewhere.
There are many different types of surgery that can lead to nicked arteries or vital organs, including the types listed below:
- Laparoscopic surgery
- Bariatric procedures (weight loss procedures)
- Open heart surgery
The best way to tell whether or not you have become the victim of medical malpractice is to look at the results you or a loved one received and speak to an attorney. If you expected a certain outcome from surgery, but left the hospital with a serious injury, medical malpractice may be involved. It could be critical to talk with a lawyer about your options.
