Get Answers After Experiencing Surgical Malpractice

How can you tell if a catastrophic personal injury or wrongful death was the result of surgeon negligence or if it was simply an accident? This is the question every malpractice claim hinges on. An experienced attorney knows how to find the answer.

At the law firm of McKeen & Associates, P.C., we know how to answer that question. With more than 30 years of experience helping people in Michigan, Illinois and throughout the United States, we know how to get positive results in surgical error cases.

Why Surgical Mistakes Happen

Medical technology has advanced greatly in recent years, making surgery much safer. With that being said, no surgery comes without risks. Unfortunately, surgical errors do happen.

Surgical errors may occur for various reasons. Sometimes, the surgical team simply isn’t experienced or trained enough to perform the procedure. In other cases, surgical mistakes happen due to a lack of proper planning and failures in communication.

Some of the most common types of surgical errors include:

  • Wrong patient surgery
  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Foreign objects left in patients
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Unnecessarily delayed surgery
  • Errors with robotic surgery

Medical providers are expected to provide a certain standard of care. If a medical professional fails in this duty, this can constitute medical malpractice. It is essential to reach out to a surgical error lawyer when this happens.

What To Do When A Surgeon Makes A Mistake

Your surgeon may or may not be forthcoming about their mistake. In some cases, it may be obvious because you experienced complications during surgery or required corrective surgery. In other cases, you may only have suspicions. Either way, the wisest thing you can do is seek a consultation with a surgical error attorney.

How A Surgical Error Attorney Can Help

Medical malpractice cases can be complex. An attorney can help you assess the causes of your injuries to identify the responsible parties and hold them to account. If successful in your claim, you could be awarded financial damages that cover your pain and suffering as well as any medical expenses associated with surgical malpractice.

Michigan imposes a statute of limitations on medical malpractice claims. Generally, you have two years from the date of your injuries to file. The sooner you get started the better. At McKeen & Associates, P.C., we are familiar with the intricacies of medical malpractice law. We’ll fight for your right to fair and just compensation.
