Nebraska Law Firm Dedicated To Recovering Compensation For The Injured
Surgery is a major medical procedure that carries certain risks. A successful surgery often requires many medical professionals doing their job properly. When a medical professional is negligent during surgery, the consequences can be devastating. It can result in life-threatening injuries or death. The medical malpractice attorneys at Ausman Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O. help people injured by surgical errors get maximum compensation for their injuries.
A surgical error usually results in further medical expenses for treating the injury. You may be unable to return to work, losing income while other bills keep coming in. You should not have to pay for a medical professional's negligence. We can help you hold negligent medical professionals accountable.
A surgical error can happen in many different ways. Some examples include:
- Surgery performed on the wrong part of the body
- A surgical instrument left in the body
- Unnecessary surgery
- Delayed surgery
- Unsanitary surgery
- Anesthesia errors
There are many causes of surgical errors. A surgeon may be distracted or tired. A surgical assistant could be poorly trained. There could be poor communication among the surgical team. Or the surgeon may have tried to rush the surgery. All are examples of negligence that can lead to injury for the patient.
