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 lawyers 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.
Our experienced Lexington personal injury attorneys have seen many types of surgical error cases and some of the most common surgical error cases are described below.
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.
If you or a loved one has sustained injuries due to surgical errors or other types of medical malpractice, contact Lexington surgical error lawyer at Gary C. Johnson, P.S.C., to schedule a consultation. Our attorneys are passionate advocates for those who have suffered injuries caused by negligent medical care. They will work to see that you are fully compensated for your injuries and that responsible parties are held accountable for their actions.
