Every surgery has risks involved. Most people accept these risks as part of the process that will, hopefully, make them healthier. Unfortunately, sometimes complications arise after surgery that doctors and other healthcare professionals miss or do not treat properly, leading to serious injury, such as a post-surgery infection, and even death. If this has happened to you or a loved one, you should seek out an attorney who can help you explore your options and who can inform you of your rights.

Evaluating Your Claim
Not all complications that result from surgery merit medical malpractice or medical negligence. For instance, most post surgery infections are common and treated effectively. However, sometimes there is a failure to monitor a post surgery infection properly by medical staff and this infection causes complications that produce serious, permanent damage that could have been avoided if treated effectively earlier.
Our medical malpractice attorneys are here to evaluate your claim and help you determine if a personal injury claim should be filed and what your next steps should be.
Post Surgery Complications
Our firm handles all types of medical malpractice cases that occur from complications after surgery as well, including:
- Internal bleeding resulting from nicked organs and arteries
- Unsuccessfully providing proper blood thinners or improperly administering blood thinners
- Insufficient or incorrect discharge instructions were provided
- Failure to adequately follow-up with a patient
- Failing to advise a patient about the results of surgery such as an additional finding of malignant cancer
- Bed sores or pressure ulcers resulting from insufficient care in the hospital during post operative recovery
- Post surgery infections resulting in sepsis, organ damage, additional surgery, etc.
