Surgery is scary enough as it is, regardless of how routine a procedure may be. Nonetheless, we go through with it because we place a great deal of trust in our doctors to make us better when we are not well.
Unfortunately, there are times when surgical errors occur and they can be devastating. There have been cases of surgical errors causing serious disability or death. These errors are the result of the surgeon and/or their team not communicating or simply being careless during a very delicate procedure.
If you or a loved one fell victim to a surgery gone wrong due to a doctor error, you may have a malpractice claim against them. With the help of a Boca Raton malpractice attorney, you can file your claim and have a powerful advocate looking out for your interests and your future.
Helping You Find Justice
Although doctors cannot have criminal charges filed against them if they make an error, they can have a malpractice claim filed against them. In Florida, there are specific rules that pertain to filing malpractice lawsuits and Ronald M. Zakarin will help you navigate these complexities. Some of the common types of surgical error cases include:
- Wrong side surgery
- Wrongful death
- Instruments left inside the body after the surgery site is closed
- Surgery site infections
- Epidural injection errors
- Nerve damage
- Pulmonary embolism resulting from poor post-op care
- Complications after trigger point injections
- Excessive bleeding
There are many things that can go wrong during a surgery when a doctor is negligent. While it may seem impossible that an experienced surgeon can make such mistakes, it does happen. They have an important job to make sure everything goes right. If something goes wrong, then it is your right to hold them responsible.
Seeking The Compensation You Deserve
When you have us fight for the compensation you need, you are giving yourself a chance to not have to pay the financial consequences of someone else’s carelessness. Your Boca Raton malpractice attorney will fight for meaningful compensation so that you are able to cover lost wages resulting from missed work, medical expenses, and other applicable costs. If you don’t file a claim, you would pay for the resulting expenses on your own and possibly suffer financially. Because the error was not your fault, that’s not fair. That is why Ronald M. Zakarin wants to review your case and recommend what your next steps should be.
