Responding legally to surgical errors in Delaware

On Behalf of | May 7, 2016 | Surgical Errors

Suffering injury because a doctor has been negligent in the care he provided can leave a patient feeling betrayed and angry. One reasonably assumes that safety measures will be followed and strict protocol adhered to when undergoing any type of medical procedure. In Delaware and other areas, many patients have been seriously injured by surgical errors that could have been prevented.

 Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, represents clients throughout the state whose lives have been devastated by substandard medical care. Many patients were not told of apparent risks associated with their surgeries. Others have suffered injuries and infections due to wrong-site operations or foreign objects being left inside their bodies after surgery.

These are among many serious issues that can be addressed through the legal system to hold those responsible for injury accountable for their actions. By investigating your situation, we can help determine all possible sources of liability, as well as the maximum compensation to which you may be entitled in a civil court. The first logical step to take is to contact our office to arrange a meeting with an experienced attorney who is prepared to aggressively litigate your case.

During recovery from a medical injury, a patient often undergoes tremendous financial strain due to ongoing medical bills and other expenses associated with an incident. There is no reason an injured victim should bear the brunt of such costs. The law allows those who have suffered at the hands of a negligent medical professional to seek full recovery for their losses by filing personal injury claims.

If you have been harmed by surgical errors in a Delaware medical facility, you may contact Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, to schedule a free consultation. This is a courtesy we offer our prospective clients so that they may discuss their situations in confidence without financial obligation. In Delaware, there is a 2-year time limit from the date of injury in which a patient can file a civil claim; therefore, it is advisable to seek legal guidance as soon as one is able when a medical malpractice injury has occurred.
