Common Causes of Surgical Cases
Medical negligence can result from numerous different problems in the health care facility where the patient undergoes surgery. One of the major causes of pain and suffering during a surgical procedure is an anesthesia error. For example, following a severe injury caused by a car accident, a patient may have to undergo invasive back surgery due to a spinal cord injury. If the anesthesiologist fails to give the patient the appropriate dosage of anesthetic or gives it to the wrong patient, the individual will experience extreme pain and suffering during the surgical procedure. This lack of medical care may cause more excruciating pain than the auto accident itself.
Another common reason for the pursuit of a medical malpractice lawsuit is a surgical error, which requires serious medical treatment or additional surgery. As these medical bills pile up, your claim should increase so that you have an adequate amount of money to cover these expenses along with the time and suffering, which you are forced to endure due to medical negligence.
Law firms and insurance companies see many surgical cases every day. Unfortunately, many suffering victims of medical malpractice are unaware of the serious violation of rights, which occurs in an event of this nature. With a personal injury lawyer who is familiar with all relevant information such as the standard of care in the state of New York, the victim should be able to acquire maximum compensation through a detailed personal injury claim.
Determining liability while pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit is usually fairly straightforward (normally an anesthesiologist or another medical professional is at fault), however it is always essential for the victim to provide as many details as possible during a case evaluation. One of the most valuable documents that a client can bring to their free case evaluation with a Bergman, Bergman, Fields & Lamonsoff lawyer is their medical records. This will help your attorney establish a lack of appropriate health care in the medical facility. The victim should also provide witness statements, photographs and any other available evidence to support their personal injury claim.
For a surgical case, it is important to have an experienced medical malpractice attorney who is familiar with the medical laws and regulations, which have been violated in your case. In United States law, the most important law for your attorney to have an in-depth understanding of is called “Standard of Care.” This U.S. law refers to a reasonable level of care and attentiveness, which medical professionals and other individuals are expected to provide an incapacitated person with. For example, in preparation for a surgical procedure, a medical professional is required to provide the patient with anesthetic when necessary to decrease pain and suffering to a reasonable level. The amount of money, which you gain during a personal injury lawsuit will depend heavily on the agreed upon standard of care in the given situation.
Cases of medical negligence typically have the potential for a large amount of money in compensation due to the pain associated with surgical errors. Without an experienced personal injury lawyer however, medical malpractice victims often settle for a much lower amount of compensation than they are entitled to. Client testimonials report the astounding compensation that Bergman, Bergman, Fields & Lamonsoff attorneys have received in compensation for a variety of surgical cases over the years.
