A previous post here discussed complications that can arise when surgeons cause their patients to suffer gastrointestinal perforations. These painful and sometimes life-threatening errors can happen when doctors and other medical professionals fail to meet their standard of care in the treatment of their patients. Texas residents who suffer this devastating form of harm may have rights to sue for their damages based on surgical error claims.
Gastrointestinal perforations are not the only type of surgical mistakes that victims can endure from botched or faulty surgical procedures. Victims can suffer surgical mistakes when their doctors perform the wrong operations on their bodies, as well as when their doctors perform the correct surgeries, but in the wrong locations of the patient’s body.
Surgical complications can also arise when doctors fail to remove all of their surgical tools from the bodies of their patients, and further surgical problems can come up when doctors fail to check that they have the rights patients on the operating tables in front of them before they begin their procedures. Put simply, there are a myriad of ways that surgical mistakes can happen and when they do Houston residents may suffer greatly.
At our law firm, we understand the incredible burden that families can take on when individuals are forced to live through the pain and suffering of surgical errors. There is often no easy path to returning a victim to their pre-mistake quality of life, but through personal injury-based litigation many victims can fight to recover their losses and push their lives forward with the compensation that they deserve.
