Prince George’s County Surgical Errors Lawyer | Serving Clients in MD, VA, & D.C.

Surgical errors and other cases of medical malpractice should not be handled by an attorney who only dabbles in malpractice law. You can depend on an experienced Prince George’s County medical malpractice lawyer right here at McCarthy, Winkelman & Mester, LLP to analyze your case and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Examples of Surgical Errors

Unfortunately, there are very many ways in which a surgeon could harm his or her patients. Some of the most common types of surgical errors that our firm sees are as follows:

  • Improperly administering anesthesia
  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Improper incisions
  • Leaving surgical instruments in the patient’s body
  • Delayed corrective surgery
  • Puncturing or otherwise harming a patient’s organs

These are just some of the ways in which surgery can go wrong, and if you believe that your surgeon made an error that has seriously harmed you, you should strongly consider retaining the services of a knowledgeable Prince George’s County surgical errors lawyer who can fight for the compensation you need in a medical malpractice claim.

Proving Your Medical Malpractice Claim

There are several steps to proving a medical malpractice claim. To start, our firm will have to prove that you were, in fact, the surgeon’s patient and that the patient owed you a duty of care. We will then have to prove that the surgeon diverted from the standard of care by acting in such a way that a reasonable physician would not, thereby injuring you and causing you to sustain significant damages as a result.

Ensure that you bring your medical malpractice claim within five years of the date of your injury, or within 3 years of the date of discovering your injury (whichever comes first). Waiting past these deadlines will most likely result in you permanently losing your right to sue. Our legal team is prepared to fight for you today.
