1 files medical malpractice claim against plastic surgeon

Patients in Tennessee and elsewhere who are scheduled to undergo a surgical procedure may place their safety in the hands of medical professionals in the process. If negligence is present during even a minor procedure, the consequences can be disastrous. A woman in another state has recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit claiming that negligence during plastic surgery caused her to suffer permanent harm.

The incident reportedly began when the woman visited a cosmetic surgeon for information on available services. She informed the doctor that she was preparing for her upcoming wedding, and she eventually scheduled a date to undergo a variety of procedures less than one week later. However, several hours into the surgery, she suddenly went into cardiac arrest after she was taken off of anesthesia but before doctors were able to suture her abdomen.

Although emergency responders were notified soon thereafter, her trip to the hospital was delayed, as it took nearly 30 minutes for the surgeon to close her abdomen. During this time, she suffered a catastrophic brain injury and now needs constant medical attention. According to reports, she isn't the only person who has suffered harm due to the negligence of the plastic surgeon, and as many as six others have filed similar lawsuits.

Any form of negligence during a surgical procedure could leave a person with life-altering injuries and the need for permanent care. Those who experience harm under similar circumstances may wish to pursue restitution, and they could choose to speak with an experienced attorney for assistance in the process. An attorney can evaluate the situation thoroughly and assist a client in Tennessee in pursuing the compensation entitled through a medical malpractice claim.
