When Surgical Equipment Gets Left Inside Patients After Surgery
In many medical malpractice claims, the scientific nuances involved make distinguishing clear evidence of negligence a complicated task. However, when a surgeon leaves behind a sponge, forceps or other surgical instrument inside of a patient after surgery, it is clearly negligent.
If you or a loved one was injured in this type of situation, hiring legal representation as soon as possible is recommended.
Be Cautious Of Settling Before Hiring An Attorney
In some cases, hospitals will attempt to settle these types of cases with injured parties or their families in order to avoid costly litigation or an astronomical jury verdict. However, without a legal advocate on your side, the settlement offer could be much lower than you should accept.
Getting an attorney with experience in handling medical malpractice matters before accepting any type of offer is important to making sure you get maximum compensation to which you are entitled.
