West Palm Beach Surgical Error Lawyer
You don’t have to suffer alone. We are here to help!
It is an especially horrendous circumstance when a patient undergoes surgery, only to find out that there was medical malpractice involved. While there can be many different forms of this, one in particular is almost unthinkable, termed “wrong site surgery.” The stress and pain of normal surgery is enough in itself, and a wrong site surgery can add a whole new level of trauma. No doubt the incident will mean more expenses than expected and the damage done is often irreversible. A healthy organ may have been removed, the wrong leg or other limb amputated or other similar situation.
A person may be rendered unable to work and completely incapacitated. These cases need the immediate attention of a West Palm Beach personal injury attorney who has a record of success in litigating medical malpractice claims. At our firm, the Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo, P.A., we aggressively represent our clients who have had the terrible misfortune of being a wrong site surgery victim, and we firmly hold the position that the responsible party must compensate them for all damages.
What is wrong site surgery?
Examples of wrong site surgery include the wrong body part or wrong side of the body being operated upon. There are cases in which the wrong patient is subjected to a surgery that was intended for another patient, with tragic outcomes. Wrong site surgeries could be a simple body repair or be as serious as an amputation or an organ or tissue transplant. Unfortunately, in the case of an amputation, there is no permanent recovery. The ramifications can change a person’s life in a very significant and negative way.
Common causes of wrong site surgeries are doctor errors, nursing errors, and hospital errors.
