Louisville Mishandling of Surgical Instruments Lawyers

There are a number of risks associated with any surgical procedure. Unfortunately, some of the most real and potentially devastating risks are caused by negligent or careless surgeons or other members of the surgery team. As we trust that medical professionals have been taught how to properly handle surgical instruments and have the experience to do so, patients shouldn’t have to worry about whether or not the surgeon will properly use the correct surgical instruments for the procedure. However, a number of patients are injured every year by this very preventable medical error.

If you or someone you know has been injured during surgery due to a surgeon’s or surgical team’s negligence, you may be eligible for financial compensation to help pay for medical bills and other losses. To learn more about how you may be able to take legal action against the careless medical professional, contact the Louisville surgical errors lawyers of the Sampson Law Firm today at 502-584-5050.

Complications from Surgical Errors

There are a number of different tools a surgeon may use during an operation. From a scalpel to a suction device to remove fluid, if a surgeon is negligent with any tool, the results could be life-altering for the patient. When surgeons make mistakes, the following problems could happen:

  • Surgeon cannot complete the surgery and fix the problem
  • Surgeon incorrectly completes the procedure
  • Increased chance of an infection or injury to the patient

The health complications caused by incorrect use of a surgical tool are completely preventable. Thus, when a medical professional makes such a grievous mistake, they should be held financially liable for the ensuing repercussions.
