Severed Nerve Leads To Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
On behalf of Hastings Law Firm posted in Doctor Error Lawyer in Houston on Monday, September 14, 2015.
It is not uncommon for a person who is scheduled for surgery to be anxious about it. Texas residents naturally expect surgeons and physicians to be professional and provide care at an acceptable standard. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and patients are often disillusioned when they are worse off after surgery than they were prior to it. Many medical malpractice claims arise from surgical errors.
A woman in another state recently filed a complaint against a doctor who allegedly failed to provide care to a reasonable standard. The plaintiff states that she underwent surgery in which the surgeon had to place an upper left arm graft. She asserts that the doctor erroneously severed a nerve and failed to repair it. Furthermore, she claims that the defendant failed to call on a nerve specialist to repair the nerve.
The defendant is accused of breaching his duty, and this led to damage in her left arm. The plaintiff contends that the damage was caused by professional negligence by the defendant. She seeks over $50,000 in the recovery of losses, including medical expenses, past and future pain and suffering — both emotional and physical, loss of normal life and disability.
It is unacceptable for medical professionals to cause life-altering injuries to their patients. However, pursuing financial relief and navigating a medical malpractice claim may be complicated.
