Kingston Surgical Error Lawyer

When you’re undergoing surgery, you’re in one of the most vulnerable positions you’ll ever be in. Even if you aren’t under general anesthesia, you’re still unable to intervene should anything go wrong, and you are completely at the mercy of the physician performing the procedure. You trust that the physicians and their assistants have taken the time to become versed in the latest trends and best practices in their field before performing the procedure, and that they will take the utmost care during the procedure itself. Let our Kingston surgical error lawyers help you seek the damages you deserve after a harrowing failed medical procedure.

You may have a right to damages after a surgical accident

Whether due to exhaustion from working extremely long hours, confusion between patient records, or simple carelessness, errors in the operating room happen all too often. When they do, you or your loved one may be left seriously injured, with mounting costs related to medical care and time spent off work. You have a right to be made whole after an operating room accident leaves you or your family member worse off than before the procedure. For a no-cost analysis of your claims after a Hudson Valley surgical error, contact the seasoned Kingston medical malpractice lawyers at Rusk, Wadlin, Heppner & Martuscello, LLP for a consultation.

Surgical errors can happen any time

Surgery has inherent risks that cannot be eliminated. Even during minor procedures, there is a chance that infection can occur. While not all risks can be eliminated, errors committed during surgery due to negligence or incompetence are dangerous and inexcusable. If records are lost or different patients’ records are confused, patients may be subjected to the wrong surgical procedure altogether. Common errors committed during surgery that can cause harmful injuries to patients include:

  • Leaving objects behind in patients
  • Failure to adequately sanitize surgical instruments
  • Damage to neighboring blood vessels, organs, or nerves
  • Errors in administering anesthesia
  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Use of outdated or incorrect surgical procedures

At Rusk, Wadlin, Heppner & Martuscello, LLP, our Hudson Valley medical malpractice attorneys will treat your claim with the seriousness and attention to detail it deserves. Our lawyers are skilled at composing strong cases for trial, relying on medical experts to show how a patient’s outcome could have been more positive had physicians performed adequately. Let us help you seek the damages you deserve after a harrowing failed medical procedure.
