Neurosurgery is one of the most sensitive types of surgery, and neurosurgeons and their attending staff are highly trained in the procedures they need to follow in order to avoid preventable injuries to patients. Unfortunately, these procedures are not always followed.
The lawyers at Furr & Henshaw have more than 40 years pursuing medical malpractice claims against negligent neurosurgeons, hospitals and other medical providers. In this time, we have earned a reputation for success, having obtained millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of our clients. With offices in Myrtle Beach and Columbia, we serve throughout South Carolina.
Identifying The Causes Of Surgical Injuries And Fatalities
Neurosurgery is a broad category that includes brain surgery as well as certain types of surgery on the spinal cord and nervous system. Brain tumors, subdural hematomas, strokes and spinal cord trauma are among the conditions often treated with neurosurgery.
Patients can suffer serious and potentially fatal injuries when neurosurgeons and their staff make medical errors such as the following:
- Damage to brain tissue
- Failure to detect increased cranial pressure
- Failure to detect hematomas following surgery
- Failure to identify and treat infections
Our firm has more than 40 years of experience pursuing medical malpractice claims on behalf of injured people and their families, and we work closely with a team of highly credible medical experts to identify the exact causes of surgical injuries and complications.
