Taking Legal Action After A Surgical Error
There is risk for something going wrong in any surgery. Determining which surgical errors were caused by medical negligence can be difficult. At the Law Offices of Louis J. Bertsche, we represent people who have suffered surgical errors and the families of those who have lost a loved one during or after surgery.
Representing Victims of Surgical Errors
Attorney Louis Bertsche has been representing medical malpractice victims since 1998. Today, he represents people who have experienced injury or illness due to surgical errors:
- Damage to adjacent organs
- Clamps, sponges, and other surgical materials left behind
- Operating on wrong body part
- Anesthesia errors
- Nerve damage
- Internal bleeding
- Post-surgical infections
- Surgical positioning errors
If you have experienced any of these errors during surgery, speak to attorney Bertsche about your legal options. Seeking medical care is most important, but seeking legal representation quickly is also important. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can begin investigating the cause of your injuries and gathering critical evidence.
Surgical Positioning Errors
During surgery, a patient is completely in the hands of his or her doctor. While unconscious, it is impossible for a patient to communicate pain, discomfort, or any problems during surgery. When lying in one position for many hours, injuries caused by pressure or cut-off blood supply can occur resulting in severe tissue or organ damage. Most of these surgical positioning injuries are preventable.
