Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers are aware that you probably have many questions about your current situation. We try to answer many of these questions below. There are the most common questions we are often asked by clients that visit our office.
If you were paralyzed due to medical malpractice you may be able to sue the negligent hopsital or doctor who committed the medical mistake. Medical malpractice lawsuits when a patient becomes paralyzed from a medical mistake are filed for a number reasons. These cases can arise from anesthesia errors, undiagnosed and untreated spinal infections, the negligent care of a stroke victim, and other types of errors.
In order to prove that a person suffered paralysis from medical negligence , it must be established through medical experts that a medical error was committed and that this was a cause of the paralysis. Many procedures involve the risk of paralysis and this unfortunate condition can happen even with proper medical care. Therefore, it must be established that the paralysis would not have occurred with proper treatment.
When a patient dies during surgery from a medical error or medical mistake, the surviving family members can file a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit. The medical malpractice lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. are actively filing lawsuits for victims’ families who died an unexpected death during surgery.
Death during a routine surgery or non-emergency surgery can happen, but often times it is the result of medical malpractice. The most common causes of unexpected death during surgery include:
- Anesthesia error
- Surgeon error in the performance of the surgery
- Cardiac arrest during surgery
- Failure to monitor patient’s vitals
- Uncontrolled bleeding
- Lack of oxygen during surgery
- Pulmonary embolism during surgery
At the time of this writing, compensation for morcellator lawsuits has not yet been paid out. Legal experts estimate that settlement amounts will be substantial when these claims are eventually settled. Power morcellators are devices that are used in myomectomy and hysterectomy procedures. Lately, they have come under heavy criticism for the risk they pose to spreading dormant cancer cells located in the uterus of some women.
Lawsuits against the makers of power morcellators seek compensation for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, lost income, medical expenses, and various other damages. Settlement amounts vary on an individual basis. Our law firm can listen to your story and determine what type of lawsuit you should pursue.
