Did you have a plastic surgery, an implant surgery or another medical procedure which resulted in more harm to you, repeat or corrective surgery because of a doctor’s failures to adhere to the reasonable standard of industry care? If the answer is yes, you may have a legal medical malpractice claim against the doctor or hospital.
We have seen the results of disastrous surgeries and the harm they cause our clients, both physically but also mentally. For example, a client who underwent a breast augmentation procedure with fat grafting (her own body fat) which was performed by a cosmetic surgeon who was not board-certified ended up having to remove her breasts post-surgery due to an infection during the procedure. The client opted to increase her breast cup size from an A cup to a C cup. Her lawyers discovered that the sterilization process and fat which was injected into her breasts were not kept in terms and in par with industry standard. As a result, her breasts were infected. The doctor was later shown in court to have committed medical malpractice because he did not adhere to the standard of care necessary and that failure or negligence caused the client physical and tangible harm.
Medical malpractice cases can take many different forms and be the result of oversights, failures, and pure negligence. Medical malpractice can be committed by a doctor who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of surgery.
