Surgical Mishaps Can Be Deadly

Even a minor surgery can lead to stress, worry and concern for the future. Patients are worried about the skill of their surgical staff as well as the procedure itself. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for inattention or poor training to lead to mistakes and injuries. At our firm, The Law Office of Nick Stein, we are prepared to represent clients in Indiana and communities in Kentucky.

With more than a half-century of combined legal experience, our Floyd County medical negligence attorneys can answer your complex questions and provide the guidance you need to get through the legal process. We understand that a surgical error can have devastating, potentially life-threatening results.

Surgical errors can include:

  • Sponges and other surgical implements left in the body
  • Nicking a vein or artery
  • Bowel perforation
  • Removing the wrong organ
  • Amputating the wrong limb
  • Introducing infection during a surgery
  • Use of faulty or defective medical devices
  • Failure to monitor vital signs during the surgery
  • Errors in anesthesia or post-operative medication
  • Failure to recognize complications during post-operative care

Mistakes during surgery can be costly — often leading to a worsening condition or even death. If you or a loved one suffered at the hands of a negligent medical professional, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with a New Albany lawyer at your earliest convenience.
