Medical Negligence During Hysterectomy Leads To Litigation
On behalf of Hastings Law Firm posted in Texas Law Firm for Surgery Injury on Tuesday, January 5, 2016.
The decision to undergo major surgery is hardly ever taken lightly. Because surgeons are known to have undergone extensive training along with years of practical experience, patients typically rely on these professionals to resolve their medical issues. Unfortunately, many Texas residents have been disillusioned by medical negligence during surgical procedures that has left them with additional medical issues.
A medical center and an obstetrics and gynecology facility along with two physicians were named as defendants in a lawsuit that was recently filed in another state. The claim was filed by a woman who alleges medical negligence when she underwent a hysterectomy at the end of 2013. The plaintiff further alleges that the negligence caused complications that are still affecting her health.
According to the complaint, the physicians allegedly completed the surgical procedure, leaving approximately 30 surgical clips inside the plaintiff’s body. The presence of the foreign objects allegedly caused significant pain while also affecting her health and causing damage to her kidneys. The surgical clips were apparently discovered by different doctors who determined that the clips had by that time become embedded in her flesh, and not all the clips could be removed without compromising the plaintiff’s safety.
The plaintiff contends that her usual activities have to be limited to prevent aggravation and re-injury. She seeks recovery of $500,000 for pain and suffering along with $250,000 for present and future medical expenses. Texas residents who are suffering adverse health consequences due to medical negligence may pursue financial relief in a similar manner. An experienced medical malpractice attorney can help with gathering the evidence required to establish negligence and provide guidance throughout the legal proceedings that will follow. With their main law offices in Houston Texas, the Hastings Law Firm have represented 100s of failure to diagnose victims across Texas and have earned the distinction of being one of the best medical malpractice lawyers in Texas.
