Connecticut Surgery Malpractice Lawyer
Legal Help for Fairfield County Patients Injured by Their Doctor or Anesthesiologist
Even a minor or routine surgery presents real risks to patients. Problems with anesthesia or surgery can occur in any operation, regardless of its complexity. In addition, negligent postoperative care can cause injury or wrongful death.
When you need representation for a medical malpractice claim, it is important to choose an attorney who has considerable experience in this complex area of law. At the law office of Richard H. Raphael, I represent the victims and families of victims of surgical errors and other types of malpractice. As a personal injury lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, I have the knowledge and skill to pursue the compensation you need.
Surgeon Negligence and Additional Errors
There are numerous types of errors that can occur during surgeries. A few of the most common errors include:
- Instruments left inside the patient
- Anesthesia overdose
- Negligent follow-up care (failure to rescue)
- Operating on the wrong body part
These and other mistakes can cause serious damage to the patient. In some cases, the injuries may be permanent and debilitating, such as:
- Brain injuries
- Back, neck and spinal cord injuries
- Disfigurement/loss of limbs
- Paralysis, paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Wrongful death
When I pursue a malpractice claim, I consult with medical and financial experts appropriate to the injury and circumstances. They assist me with providing proof of negligence and the effect it has on the victim's life. With this evidence, I am able to argue for full and fair compensation for medical bills, lost income, monthly expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
