Different types of surgery come with different levels of risk. When a surgery was supposed to be low risk, yet resulted in serious complications, it is possible that the complications were the result of medical malpractice. For more than 50 years, the Cincinnati surgical error lawyers at the law firm of Gregory S. Young Co., LPA, have been helping victims of surgical malpractice in Ohio and northern Kentucky. We know how to investigate these claims thoroughly in order to determine whether or not malpractice took place. If it did, we will take action.
Signs Of Surgical Malpractice
In some cases, it is obvious that medical malpractice took place. For example, if a patient goes in for a knee replacement and the doctors replace the wrong knee, clearly something was done incorrectly. Similarly, if a sponge or some other surgical implement is left in the body after surgery, it was likely the result of surgical errors.
Sometimes, the signs of surgical errors are more subtle. We know how to spot them. We know how to build strong cases designed to get compensation for repeat surgeries and other medical expenses. Our attorneys will go to trial to get results in these cases.
Infections And Post-Surgical Care
Complications are not limited to the surgical procedure itself. Often, problems arise after the surgery. The surgery may have seemingly gone well, but proper aftercare is not provided and infections arise. These infections can be life-threatening and damaging. We will hold surgeons and hospitals accountable for untreated and preventable infections.
