Lexington Surgical Error Attorney

Millions of surgeries are prescribed and performed each year with the goal of improving patients’ health and comfort. Patients do not typically look forward to having a surgical procedure, but they certainly look forward to the physical improvements they will experience after recovering from their surgeries. Unfortunately, our Lexington surgical error attorneys know that sometimes patients experience injuries and worsened conditions after a surgery when surgical errors are made.

Medical professionals are often not forthcoming when it comes to medical errors and if you know or suspect that you may be a victim of negligent medical care, contact us at Gary C. Johnson, P.S.C., to discuss your post-surgery injuries and complications.

Lexington Surgical Error Attorneys

  • Our attorneys are highly knowledgeable and experienced in medical malpractice cases and specifically those cases related to surgical errors.
  • Because of our experience, we have extensive contacts in the medical field. This allows our Lexington medical malpractice attorneys to secure skilled medical experts as needed for medical review, consultation, and expert testimony.
  • We provide legal representation to medical malpractice victims on a contingency fee basis so that collecting attorneys’ fees is contingent on our clients first securing financial compensation for their injuries and damages.
  • We understand that injuries and complications resulting from surgical errors can have both immediate and long-term impacts. For this and other reasons, we work to maximize our clients’ compensation for their claims so that the amount they receive will cover all of their immediate and future needs.

Common Types Of Surgical Errors

Our experienced attorneys have seen many types of surgical error cases and some of the most common surgical error cases are described below.

  • Infections caused by contaminated surgical tools and equipment or poor environmental hygiene. Infections can also develop when patients do not receive appropriate post-surgery medical care.
  • Foreign objects such as surgical tools or sponges left inside of a patient’s body after surgery.
  • Incorrect surgical procedure performed on a patient such as operating on the left side when it should have been the right side or mixing up patient records resulting in performing a procedure on one patient that should have been performed on another patient.
  • Other negligent surgical practices leading to injuries such as failing to monitor oxygen levels in a patient under anesthesia or damaging organs, tissues, or nerves near the operating site.

How We Can Help

Sometimes surgical errors are so blatant that there is simply no way to cover them up. Other times, surgical errors are harder to pinpoint, especially because, as mentioned above, medical professionals are often not forthcoming when mistakes have been made. Our attorneys, often with the help of medical experts, will conduct an investigation into your injuries. The investigation may include reviewing medical records, interviewing medical professionals and other witnesses, and hiring appropriate medical experts to conduct an independent medical examination of your condition and the injuries you have sustained.
