Maryland Medical Malpractice Attorneys You Can Depend On
There are no guarantees with surgery. There are always risks. A surgeon can do everything exactly right at exactly the right times and still end up with a bad result. But a lot can go wrong during surgery that has nothing to do with chance, just bad medicine.
Whatever the reason — negligent health care providers must be held accountable for the injuries and harm they cause.
At Rowe Weinstein & Sohn, PLLC, we have the experience and expert resources it takes to establish medical negligence, and we will work hard to obtain full compensation for the damages you have suffered because of it. For a realistic assessment of potential medical negligence claims in Maryland, the District of Columbia or northern Virginia — contact Rowe Weinstein & Sohn, PLLC.
Why Do Surgical Errors Occur?
Surgical errors happen for many reasons. Surgeons are often overworked and overtired. Critical instructions with respect to patient care may be missing or illegible. Lack of training, unfamiliarity with operating room equipment and alcohol or drug abuse by team members can also be issues.
As experienced attorneys, we know what questions to ask, which experts to talk to and where to look for evidence of most types of surgical errors, including:
- Giving a patient too much or the wrong type of medication or anesthesia
- Giving a patient the wrong blood type
- Misreading a medical chart or medical history
- Performing the wrong surgery or the right surgery on the wrong part of the body
- Failing to detect inadvertent cuts to internal organs
- Failing to diagnose and treat a post-operative infection
Our attorneys have extensive experience, strong knowledge of the medical issues and a proven track record of getting results in even the toughest of personal injury cases. We are also able to draw on the expertise of doctors, nurses and other health care professionals to help us a build a clear, complete and compelling case for the compensation you deserve.
