Surgical Errors Can Take Many Forms
At the law firm of Cronin & Maxwell, PL, our Jacksonville surgical error attorneys help malpractice victims pursue maximum compensation. We have the experience to assist clients with all types of surgical injuries, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Common bile duct injuries: Laparoscopic gall bladder surgery has become one of the most common surgical procedures performed in the United States. Unfortunately, when this surgery is performed negligently, the common bile duct can be damaged, causing serious and potentially fatal complications, including infection and liver damage.
- Severe surgical bleeding: Surgeons and their staff members have a responsibility to limit bleeding during surgery. Severe bleeding can prove fatal, and even if the patient survives, the measures taken to control the bleeding can result in additional complications.
- Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS): When a nerve is damaged during surgery, the patient can develop CRPS, formerly known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) and causalgia. This disorder can result in severe pain and swelling, requiring intensive medical treatment. If this treatment is not successful, CRPS can cause permanent disability.
Every surgery carries certain risks. It is up to the medical profession — not individual doctors — to decide which risks are acceptable and which must be disclosed to patients. Our attorneys are experienced at evaluating surgical error claims to determine whether malpractice occurred.
