Surgical Malpractice Attorney in Omaha
A lot can go wrong on the operating table. Any mistake made during surgery can lead to a medical emergency or even death in a matter of seconds. Surgeons work a demanding job, juggling people’s lives every day. They get tired, burnt-out, sick, and sometimes they get complacent. But in the medical field, there is no room for errors. And when a surgical error causes permanent damage to a patient, there must be accountability.
At Bottlinger Law L.L.C., our Omaha medical malpractice attorney has experience recovering compensation for injuries caused by surgical errors. We want to help you recover comfortably, without having to worry about financial issues caused by the incident. Call (402) 505-8234 today to discuss your case in a free consultation.
Surgery is inherently dangerous. Under anesthesia, even a common procedure can take a turn for the worse—but it shouldn’t, if the patient is healthy and the medical providers are paying attention. Surgical errors can occur at any point surrounding surgery, from pre-operative check-ins to the operation to aftercare. Here are some potential surgical errors in Omaha hospitals:
- Anesthesia errors
- Muscle and nerve damage
- Lacerations to internal organs
- A misdiagnosis leading to unnecessary surgery
- Surgical site infection
- Leaving foreign object inside a patient
- Operating on the wrong body part
- Wrong-patient mix-up leading to unnecessary surgery
- Poor wound care, leading to compartment syndrome
In addition, a patient having a reaction to anesthesia would probably count as malpractice. Anesthesiologists are supposed to test for allergies beforehand and control the patient’s reaction (as well as breathing and heart rate) while under general anesthesia.
The fallout from a surgical error can alter a patient’s quality of life forever, or in a worst-case scenario, end their life. Our firm deals with wrongful death claims from medical malpractice as well.
We place our lives in a medical teams’ hands while undergoing surgical procedures, and when that trust is shattered due to negligence, the perpetrators should be held accountable.
