Surgical Mistakes

A lot can go wrong during even the most common of surgical procedures, which is why responsible hospitals and surgical teams take extensive precautions. However, precautions can occasionally fail when presented with a particularly negligent medical professional. This can result in the wrong procedure being performed; leaving medical supplies used during the surgery inside of the patient, or failing to promptly and properly react when unanticipated problems arise.

To best serve our clients and the community as a whole, LaCourse Law will only bring a medical malpractice case against a healthcare professional, doctor, hospital, or other institution if the claim has been fully investigated, reviewed, and validated as being meritorious by a recognized expert in the field. We also, in this way, can prevent filing “frivolous lawsuits.”

Patients bringing medical malpractice claims face a daunting challenge. Medical malpractice litigation is highly complex and selecting a skilled attorney to represent your claim is important in reaching a successful resolution.

Because of the complexity of medical malpractice actions, it is important that they are pursued as soon as possible after the negligent conduct. Medical records and bills have to be gathered and reviewed by an expert to confirm the existence of negligent conduct. A lawsuit and expert report must then be filed. Of course, these things take a great deal of time, energy and resources. Therefore, it is important for anyone who believes they have a medical malpractice claim to have their case reviewed as soon as possible.
