Complications with Cardiac Surgery

There are few surgical procedures that are more invasive and delicate than cardiac surgery. That being said, patients have every right to expect their surgeon—including his or her staff—to take every reasonable care to ensure the procedure goes exactly as planned. Unfortunately, serious mistakes are sometimes made in the operating room and some patients end up having to deal with serious health complications that should have been prevented. If you or someone you love was not properly operated upon, you may be able to take legal action against the responsible party.

Claiming Compensation with a Medical Malpractice Claim

While it is true that there are inherent risks that every patient must assume before undergoing cardiac surgery, medical professionals can be held liable for serious mistakes that occur before, during, or following the surgery. An error made at any stage of the procedure may cause a number of potentially devastating complications, including but not limited to the following:

  • Stroke
  • Brain damage
  • Infection
  • Disability

Whatever the particulars of your claim happen to be, our attorneys can evaluate your case and then help you take the legal action necessary to pursue compensation for your pain and suffering.
