Even A Minor Surgery Can Lead To Disaster

Without placing too fine a point on it — surgery is scary. Even a minor surgery is met with anxiety and worry for the future. Every small incision is analyzed to the point of exhaustion. Ultimately, patients trust in the experience and professionalism of their health care providers. Being under the care of a negligent or inattentive surgeon, however, can be disastrous, even fatal.

At Floyd Leopard, LLP, our attorneys are prepared to guide injured clients through the process of recovering monetary damages. We will fight for your full and fair compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering. Trust our firm to fight on your behalf through negotiations with the insurance company or in traditional trial litigation.

Surgical Negligence Can Have Devastating Results

Medical negligence not only affects the injured party, but also his or her entire family. Whether the family is forced to cope with a debilitating condition or must grieve the loss of a loved one, surgical errors can alter an entire life. Our lawyers are prepared to help clients following:

  • Removal of the wrong organ
  • Amputation of the wrong limb
  • Leaving material (sponges, surgical instruments) in the body
  • Failure to monitor vital signs
  • Administering incorrect medication dosages

Additionally, a patient can be at risk following a surgery. Prescribing the incorrect medication and failure to monitor recovery or conditions leading to infection can all result in serious conditions. Whether the negligence was the result of a poorly trained staff, faulty instruments, defective medical devices or inattention during the procedure, your life is at risk.
