Even a minor error can cause life-changing damage

Patients in Maryland are often fortunate enough to receive excellent care from the medical professionals on whom they rely. Going through surgery is seldom a pleasant experience and the prospect can often be daunting and distressing. As such, you hope that the doctors and nurses responsible for your care will do everything they can to ensure that the procedure goes smoothly and that you are suitably looked after.

Sadly, mistakes are often made, whether they are clerical errors, incorrect observations, misdiagnoses or even mistakes during surgery. Whatever the case, the consequences can be devastating. Some patients have endured complications such as infections, instruments being left inside their body or even wrong-site surgery. To make things worse, in some cases the issue is not detected until some time after the surgery. Meanwhile, the patient may be living in great discomfort assuming it is simply an aftereffect of the surgery.

If you have experienced a surgical error, you will already know how traumatic it can be. No matter how great or small the complication, it is still the last thing you want to have to deal with after going through a medical procedure. On top of that, the medical professional responsible for the mistake could repeat the error with future patients, causing further suffering and possibly endangering lives.

Our page on surgical errors has some information on the steps you can take in the wake of such mistreatment. By challenging negligent medical professionals you not only help to prevent them from harming anyone else, but you also may be able to secure remuneration for your injuries. An attorney can evaluate your case and may be able to assist you with making a claim.
