Baton Rouge Surgical Error Lawyer
A surgeon has a tremendous responsibility to those who he or she is operating on during a procedure. Not only does a surgeon need to properly conduct the surgery, but must also know what is on the X-ray and what nurses need to do throughout the procedure to ensure that it is done correctly. Unfortunately, preventable errors during surgery often cause significant harm to patients.
At Dodson & Hooks, APLC, our lawyers have represented individuals and families impacted by surgical mistakes. We are recognized by our clients and our legal peers for our skill and extensive experience handling complex litigation related to negligent surgical practices. The damage caused by a surgical error is often significant, and we work to help our clients recover the compensation they deserve.
Dodson & Hooks, APLC, has represented clients who have suffered an injury or lost a loved one due to surgical errors that include:
- Anesthesia errors
- Radiology and X-ray errors
- Neurological damage
- Pre-surgical errors
- Postoperative care errors
- Surgery on wrong organ or body part
- Equipment left in body
Surgical errors are not always immediately obvious, and even when they are, relating them to doctor error is rarely easy. Mistakes happen — not all surgical injuries are the result of negligence. But it is important to hold medical professionals accountable when they have failed to follow acceptable standards of treatment, and that failure has led to a serious injury or death.
