The Consequences of Organ Puncture
The most common victim of organ perforation during surgery is the bowel. Because of its length and structure it can very easily be caught by the edge of a knife. The intestines, stomach and liver are other potential candidates for surgical damage.
If any of these crucial systems are damaged, waste can enter the body cavity causing infection, internal bleeding, as well as many other problems. If you are suffering any of the following after surgery, your surgeon may have caused more harm than good.
Common Signs of Organ Damage from Surgery Include:
- Swollen abdomen
- Pain in the abdomen
- Bowel dysfunction
Surgeons are trained to avoid damaging internal organs and procedures are in place that compel them to check for any damage that may have occurred before closing the incision. Unfortunately, many surgeons are poorly trained or fail to follow these procedures.
Our attorneys look closely at your medical records to determine whether all of the proper precautions were taken and the correct equipment was used during the surgery. We also look at when the damage was correctly diagnosed and the actions that followed.
With more than a decade of experience in medical malpractice, we are able to identify the problem and show how the negligence occurred. We pursue full and fair compensation to cover the costs of the harm done to you and the damage that may affect the rest of your life. By holding your surgeon accountable for negligence, you may prevent this horrible tragedy from occurring to anyone else.
