Surgical Errors

Committed to Justice for Surgical Malpractice

medicalmalpracticeSurgery is complicated and messy. Even the most skilled surgeons make mistakes, and juries are sometimes willing to forgive an honest slip of the knife. It’s a different story when the surgical team makes sloppy errors or doesn’t realize its mistakes, and the patient dies or suffers catastrophic injury.

The law practice of Michael K. Bush and John C. Bush will fight to hold doctors and hospitals accountable for true negligence relating to surgery errors and complications of surgical procedures. We have achieved notable results in medical malpractice litigation, including surgery malpractice.

Davenport Surgical Errors Lawyers

Trial lawyers Michael K. Bush and John C. Bush have represented the victims of medical negligence for 30 years.  We have the experience to ask the right questions and the resources to hire the right experts who can testify how the surgeon, the surgical nurses and/or the hospital administrators were negligent.

Not every bad outcome of surgery constitutes medical malpractice. We can determine if you have a viable claim for injury or wrongful death resulting from:

  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Foreign objects (e.g. sponges or clamps) left inside the patient
  • Nicked arteries, organs or nerves
  • Anesthesia error
  • Failure to monitor in post-op and recovery
  • Post-surgery infection

In successful surgery malpractice cases, it is not so much the accidental injury as the decisions or shortcuts that led to the mistake, or the failure to recognize the mistake, mitigate the damage and follow up. Did staff listen to patient complaints? Did they recognize the signs of distress?

We represented a woman who was in the hospital to have her tubes tied. During the routine procedure, the surgeon nicked her bladder. Although she complained afterward of pain and discomfort that was not subsiding, the hospital discharged her. By the next day she was septic and had to be brought to the emergency room, and soon lapsed into a six-month coma from the undiagnosed and untreated infection.
