Surgical procedures always carry some element of risk, but advances in medical technology have made surgery safer than ever before. However, patients still endure unnecessary complications and injuries, or may even be killed, as a result of negligence on the part of surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses and other medical professionals in the operating room.
At the law office of O’Brien Batten & Kirtley, PLLC, a Lexington, Kentucky, medical malpractice law firm, we advocate aggressively on behalf of individuals who have been injured due to surgical errors or on behalf of families who have lost loved ones due to surgical negligence.
A Helping Hand After Devastating Surgical Errors
With more than 80 years of combined experience, our attorneys have the background and skill necessary to take on complex medical malpractice cases involving surgical errors such as:
- Performing surgery on the wrong body part
- Operating with unsterile instruments
- Leaving a foreign object in the body
- Performing unnecessary surgeries
- Failing to inform a patient of surgical risks
We work closely with clients, learning about their situation and the consequences that surgical errors have had on their lives. Then, we pull together medical records, witness statements and consult respected medical experts to build a strong case that will help clients secure the compensation they both need and deserve.
Throughout the entire process, our attorneys remain available to clients, answering questions and discussing what comes next. We do everything we can to make the legal process as smooth and stress free as possible, so that clients can concentrate on healing while we help them achieve the best results possible.
