Did A Surgery Leave You Injured? You May Deserve Compensation
Undergoing a surgical procedure is always frightening. Even minor, routine surgery could have severe complications. You put your trust in your surgeon and other medical staff, only to realize that they acted negligently, causing you serious harm.
To seek compensation for your damages, you must go up against the hospital and its powerful insurance company. You will need a law firm like (NAP law) on your side. With 50 years of experience helping clients who experienced surgical errors, we have the strength, reputation and knowledge to take action against negligent medical providers.
What Are Some Common Surgical Errors?
When a surgeon, nurse or other professional does not provide an adequate standard of care and this results in an injury, it is considered medical malpractice. Surgical errors are one type of malpractice. These errors can include:
- Leaving an object inside a patient
- Operating on the wrong area of the body
- Performing the wrong procedure
- Performing a procedure incorrectly
- Administering too much or too little anesthesia
- Inflicting damage to the nerves
Your Hospital Might Not Always Protect Your Interests
Hospitals are supposed to have patients’ best interests at heart. In most cases, they do. But when it comes to surgical errors, the hospital’s primary goal is to protect its own reputation. The hospital’s powerful insurance company does not want to pay you a settlement — it wants to protect its own bottom line.
Fortunately, Elk & Elk has taken on powerful interests like hospitals and insurance providers for 50 years. We have recovered over $1 billion in settlements and verdicts for our clients.
