An instance of surgical malpractice can cause a person who was already ill to be burdened by an additional injury. He or she may need another surgery to repair the damage. Unfortunately, in some cases, there may be nothing that can be done to fix the problem.
The medical malpractice lawyers at Gallon, Takacs & Boissoneault provide experienced representation to injured patients and their families in Ohio and Michigan. We understand the frustration that people feel when a surgery does not produce the desired outcome. We investigate the claims to determine liability and to find answers for the patients and their families. Please call 419-843-6663 to schedule a free consultation.
A surgical error can cause injuries such as brain damage, organ damage, paralysis, nerve damage or amputation. These types of injuries may result in permanent disability or wrongful death. Our attorneys seek compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. You may also receive compensation for funeral expenses and the personal loss of a loved one in wrongful death cases.
Surgical errors may include issues such as:
Not every bad outcome is the result of malpractice. We will determine whether medical negligence by any member of your health care team caused your injury.
A delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis can cause serious harm to a patient. It may even cause wrongful death. If you or a family member has been a victim of misdiagnosis, you may be able to collect compensation for your losses.
Typically, a valid misdiagnosis claim involves significant harm to or death of the injured patient. While the physician may be at fault, a misdiagnosis can also be caused by other medical staff such as radiologists, pathologists, diagnostic technicians or lab technicians.
Errors and negligence resulting in a misdiagnosis can include:
Any of these issues may result in failing to make an accurate diagnosis while the patient’s illness is treatable. Catastrophic injury or wrongful death may occur if a patient is not properly diagnosed with illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infection, and diabetes. Failure to diagnose eclampsia, gestational diabetes or fetal distress can cause serious or fatal birth injuries.
Our medical malpractice attorneys have many years of experience fighting for victims of medical negligence. We know how to investigate claims and determine liability. Whether we negotiate a settlement or take your case to trial, you can rely on our dedication to pursuing the compensation you need for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any related expenses.
