Whether to remedy a health problem or to maintain good health, people undergo surgery every day in Chicago and throughout the region. While many patients are aware of the risks of surgery, few realize that negligence can result in injuries and death in the hours and days after surgery.
At Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP, in Chicago, we represent victims of postoperative negligence in Cook County and surrounding areas of Illinois. The line between acceptable mistakes and real malpractice is thin, so it is important to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side who can help you build a strong case.
Postsurgical Health Threats And Errors
The care a patient receives after surgery is just as crucial as the operation itself. One of the most dangerous postoperative risks is the risk of infection. It is important for nurses and other hospital staff to monitor patients for signs of infection and other postoperative complications. Failure to do so can result in amputation or death.
There is a high burden of proof for all medical malpractice cases, but claims involving surgery are among the most difficult to prove in court. From the immediate recovery and post-op evaluation to long-term impacts of a post-op error, our firm will help you hold health care providers accountable for their negligence.
