While every surgery involves a certain amount of risk, bad surgical outcomes cannot always be explained away as bad luck. A negligent surgical mistake or medical error by a member of the operating team may be directly responsible.
If your life has been permanently altered or a loved one has died as a result of an adverse surgery, the attorneys at Furr & Henshaw can help you determine whether you have a medical malpractice claim.
Handling All Types Of Surgical Error Cases
Our firm has more than 40 years of experience holding doctors, hospitals and other health care providers accountable for medical negligence. We have extensive experience helping clients pursue compensation for surgical errors, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Laparoscopic surgery errors
- Gall bladder surgery errors
- Robotic surgery errors
- Eye surgery errors
- Orthopedic surgery errors
- Bypass surgery errors
- Neurosurgery errors
- Foreign bodies
- Anesthesia errors
- Errors with knee or hip replacements
- Defective/infected equipment
Lack of informed consent is also a factor in many surgical error cases. Even if you suffered an injury as a result of one of the normal risks of surgery, you may have a medical malpractice claim if you were not informed of those risks before consenting to the surgery.
