Medical Malpractice Involving Laparoscopic Surgery
Medical malpractice during laparoscopic surgery is not much different from surgical errors in traditional surgeries, with many of the same mistakes:
- Failure to stop bleeding or infections
- Operation on the wrong surgical site or the wrong patient
- Mistakes administering anesthesia
- Blood contamination or poisoning
- Leaving a surgical instrument in the body
There can, however, be additional questions to ask when laparoscopic errors occur. Was the surgeon properly trained on laparoscopic surgery techniques? Did the surgeon make the right choice when choosing laparoscopic surgery over traditional surgery? Was there adequate post-surgical care?
Our lawyers have significant experience finding answers and recovering compensation for the victims of surgical errors. In addition to our knowledgeable attorneys, our legal team includes two professional nurses who can help evaluate the care you received before, during and after your laparoscopic surgery.
