Massachusetts Surgical Damage Attorneys

A skilled injury attorney can help you understand if you have a case and help you fight for the resources that you need.

Do I Need a Surgical Damage Lawyer?
Surgery alone is a significant expense for patients and their families. When a doctor fails to provide the appropriate care, additional expense is created. In addition to the cost that occurs for continued medical care, surgical errors complicate healing time, preventing patients from returning to work in a timely manner. Medical expenses and lost wages put most patients and their families in a strained financial situation. An attorney can help you recover the financial resources that you need in order to afford the additional procedures and care that you need to heal.
Hospitals account for potential medical mistakes by staffing up with sophisticated legal teams and comprehensive insurance plans. If you are going up against a hospital, you should expect a tough fight. As such, you need a lawyer with the skill and experience to win. Attempting to file a claim on your own will likely result in ongoing delays and a much lower settlement than you would otherwise receive with the help of an attorney. Don’t gamble on your recovery; make sure that you fight for the maximum amount of compensation possible with the help of a lawyer.

Types of Surgical Damage Cases We Handle
When a surgeon causes damage to the muscles, ligaments, and tissues surrounding the primary surgical site, it can cause further severe complications. Even if the surgery addresses the initial issue, it can produce other physical problems that need to be addressed. Not only is this inconvenient to the patient, but it is also often painful, costly, and even deadly.
The following could occur if your surgeon causes undue damage to the areas surrounding the surgical site:
- Scarring or disfigurement
- Additional surgeries required
- Temporary or permanent nerve damage
- Extended healing time
- Loss of normal muscle function
- Decreased mobility and flexibility
If your loved one was killed as a result of damage to surrounding body parts during surgery, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim on their behalf. Through this claim, you can recover compensation for funeral expenses, loss of income, loss of consortium, and more.
If you want to take action against your surgeon or the medical facility, the standard deadline to file a claim is three years. However, there are some exceptions, such as if you discovered your injury sometime after the surgery was performed, the plaintiff is a minor, or the defendant attempted to conceal the malpractice. A lawyer can help you determine how much time you have left to file.
