Medical Malpractice Associated With Surgery
We've all seen the stereotype on TV. It's the surgeon who thinks he or she can do no wrong. You know the one, every decision is absolutely correct. Every cut is precise. Every action unchallengeable. The surgeon who thinks the only thing standing between them and the best possible outcome in every case is the blundering assistant who keeps handing them the wrong surgical tools.
In the real world, very few surgeons think or act this way. Most are dedicated, highly skilled professionals who care a lot about both their patients, and what they do. Even so, surgical errors are not uncommon.
At Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC, we respect doctors and the work they do. We also appreciate the difficulty involved with making split-second life-or-death decisions. At the same time, surgeons who make obvious medical mistakes or who fail to meet the standards of patient care established by their own medical community ought to be held accountable — for everyone's safety. If you have doubts about a bad surgical outcome — contact us today for a free consultation.
Handling Surgical Error Lawsuits
Throughout the Memphis Tri-State Area
Our attorneys have extensive experience with medical malpractice claims and a nearly 40-year track record of successful results. We have seen cases of surgical error involving operations on the wrong limb or wrong part of the body. We have also seen cases where surgeons have left surgical tools inside a patient's body. Surgical errors can also lead to life-threatening infections.
Don't Wait to Talk to a Lawyer
By waiting to talk to a lawyer, you could be giving the surgeon and the hospital the time and opportunity to limit or avoid responsibility for the harm you've suffered. Waiting also allows evidence to become lost. There are also limits on the amount of time in which you have to file a medical malpractice claim. For these reasons and more, we encourage you to take action as soon as possible.
