Surgery Errors May Be Medical Malpractice

Most people are very nervous about going in for surgery. As patients, we have no choice but to put our faith in the medical team and hope to wake up to good news.

Sometimes operations go wrong. The surgery causes serious harm or the patient never awakens. The question is whether the medical professionals made critical mistakes that could and should have been prevented. If so, the Honolulu medical malpractice attorneys of Turbin Chu Heidt will work to hold them legally responsible.

We Hold Doctors And Hospitals Accountable For Surgical Mistakes

Surgical malpractice takes many forms such as:

  • Anesthesia errors resulting in brain damage or death
  • Scalpel errors causing nerve damage, organ damage or internal bleeding
  • Operating on the wrong side or performing the wrong operation
  • Leaving medical instruments inside the patient
  • Failure to obtain informed consent
  • Failure to monitor in post-op recovery

Our attorneys have secured many verdicts and settlements over the years for medical malpractice in surgery. In one recent case, a patient underwent what should have been a same-day shoulder surgery. The anesthesiologist kept the patient under anesthesia too long and was not able to bring him back. We obtained a recovery for the family for wrongful death.

If we determine your case has legal merit, Turbin Chu Heidt will put its full resources behind it. We invest in qualified experts in surgical medicine who can review the medical records and attest that a surgeon, nurse or anesthesiologist made a careless mistake or deviated from accepted medical practices. We build a compelling case for liability and for damages. If the defense is not willing to compensate our client accordingly, our lawyers are prepared to go to trial and present our thoroughly documented case to a jury.
