Experienced Surgical Errors and Malpractice Attorneys
Undergoing surgery is a nerve-wracking experience for anyone. Your doctor may have quickly gone over the details with you, and even if everything is clear about the procedure that you are undergoing, you may still experience anxiety that not everything will go as planned. But, something that you shouldn’t have to worry about are potential surgical errors, or what you’ll do in the event of medical malpractice.
If something has happened and you suspect the possibility of medical negligence or malpractice, then you should discuss the details with a Chicago malpractice attorney as soon as possible to find out if there is something that you can do.
What Can Go Wrong?
Stressful as it may be to consider what can go wrong during a surgical procedure, there are several different things that can happen. With medical error, there have been cases of wrong-site surgery (for example, the procedure was supposed to be on the left side of the body but is actually performed on the right side), too much or too little anesthesia, or infection due to inadequate use of antiseptic.
There have also been cases of surgery being performed on the wrong patient or the wrong procedure performed entirely, surgical items left in the body, and unnecessary injury to tissue and organs. Medical malpractice law may entitle you to compensation for errors such as these.
Are All Poor Outcomes the Result of Malpractice?
While this may seem like it should be a “yes or no” question, the answer is actually rather complex. Not all surgery-related injuries and outcomes are directly related to error, or even neglect. Our team of attorneys at Malman Law know this, and we’re keenly aware that it is necessary to examine your injuries to determine if they could have reasonably been prevented by a medical professional.
In fact, negligence is determined in the context of what other similarly experienced medical professionals would have done, and if the outcome could have been different under a similar professional. If it appears that malpractice was involved, then our team will begin fighting for your legal rights immediately.
What Are You Entitled To?
If you experience problems related to a surgical procedure, you may be entitled to compensation for surgical error-related medical malpractice. Medical malpractice law dictates that malpractice is not acceptable, and if you suspect that you have a case on your hands, you should discuss the details with one of our expert attorneys. You may be entitled to financial compensation, both for medical bills and for future medical problems caused or exacerbated by the malpractice incident. If you are forced to miss work due to an injury or error caused by a doctor, you may also be entitled to wages lost while you’ve been out. Even if you signed a waiver of liability, you may be eligible for legal action.
Why Choose Malman Law to Represent Your Malpractice Case?
At Malman Law, we choose patients and their families over insurance companies, hospitals, medical professionals, and others. We believe that, because you have suffered at the hands of someone else – in this case, someone whom you trusted to provide professional and compassionate care in your time of medical vulnerability – you deserve justice, and the compensation required to get you and your family on the road to recovery. While no amount of money can undo the pain, suffering, emotional trauma, and anxiety that you and your loved ones have experienced, securing financial compensation for these losses can mean that you have a brighter future – and one filled with less financial headache – ahead of you. For these reasons, we offer the following to all of our clients:
- Our Zero Fee Guarantee – This means that, if we are unable to secure a settlement (either through negotiations or court proceedings), you will not owe any legal fees. This helps to ensure that everyone can seek justice, not just those who can already afford it.
- Our Extensive Experience – We have been servings clients just like you for over 25 years. In this time, we have pursued thousands upon thousands of claims, and secured six, seven, and eight-figure settlements for some of our clients. We also have a medically trained attorney on staff, as well as an RN who has over three decades of medical experience. When you choose our team, you will always have some of the best professionals advocating on your behalf.
- Our Commitment to Clients – We provide compassionate, personalized attention to each client. Although we’ve worked with many thousands of cases, we never lose sight of how unique each situation is.
