Options for those who have suffered surgical errors in Louisiana

When a person undergoes a surgical procedure to treat a medical condition or repair a bodily injury, winding up in worse condition afterward is generally not what is expected. Surgical errors occur at alarming rates in Louisiana hospitals and others throughout the nation. Such mistakes are often preventable and result in severe injuries -- sometimes, even death.

The most frequently reported mistakes include operations performed on the wrong body parts, wrong surgical procedures, and foreign objects being mistakenly left inside the bodies of patients after surgery. One can only imagine the horror of going into the hospital for knee surgery, only to learn upon waking from anesthesia that the surgeon operated on the wrong knee! The shock and sorrow associated with learning that a child or spouse has died due to a surgical error that could have easily been prevented is equally unfathomable.

A person whose life has been devastated by medical negligence of this sort may feel overwhelmed and wonder where to seek support. Many people who have suffered in similar incidents in the past have sought recourse through the legal system by retaining the help of medical malpractice attorneys to file injury claims in civil courts. The process is often complicated and the burden of proof in such situations lies with the plaintiffs.

However, an experienced attorney knows how to carefully analyze the events that led to an injury or death in order to gather evidence to help substantiate a claim. Gainsburgh, Benjamin, David, Meunier & Warshauer, L.L.C. is committed to help families obtain full recoveries for the losses they've endured due to surgical errors. To discuss the process of filing a claim, simply contact our Louisiana office to arrange a consultation.
