Even the most minor surgical procedure contains a certain amount of risk. Any patient in Louisiana who has been recommended for surgery will want to learn as much as possible ahead of time before entrusting the outcome to a medical professional. Unfortunately, there have been many reports of surgical errors and the often devastating aftermaths that ensue when doctors or nurses provide substandard care.
One of the most common mistakes involves wrong-site surgeries. Other patients have suffered serious infections and high levels of pain due to foreign objects being left inside their bodies after surgery. The catastrophic results often associated with negligent medical care can thrust families into the throws of tremendous financial debt, in addition to the emotional sorrow and trauma associated with such incidents.
When a victim of medical negligence pursues the matter in court, the result often leads to changes in protocol and health care industry guidelines that may help prevent similar tragedies from happening in the future. Often, third party testimony is enlisted to help substantiate the severity of a patients injury, as well as what may have caused it to occur. At Gainsburgh, Benjamin, David, Meunier & Warshauer, L.L.C., we understand the risks involved when medical professionals fail to adhere to the highest accepted standards of safety in their industry.
Our attorneys are committed to helping recovering victims, as well as the families who have suffered the untimely deaths of loved ones due to surgical errors, seek compensation for damages so that those responsible for their pain can be held legally accountable. Because we understand many of our clients are already facing tremendous financial difficulties, we offer our services on a contingent basis; meaning, we charge no fees unless we secure a settlement or verdict on a client's behalf. Those with questions or concerns about such matters can contact our Louisiana office to discuss their situation.
