Errors in surgery lead to medical malpractice claim

Having to undergo a surgical procedure can be a scary experience and any complications from the operation could have a disastrous impact on a person's well-being. In some cases, errors during surgery can even prove fatal, and families in Tennessee who lose a loved one due to the negligent actions of a medical professional may be left in search of answers. A jury recently awarded a judgment of nearly $5 million to a woman's estate in a recent medical malpractice lawsuit after a surgery left her with injuries that eventually proved fatal.

According to reports, the incident began when the woman was set to undergo a procedure to remove an abdominal cyst. The lawsuit stated that during the operation, her doctor cut and removed a small portion of her right ureter. According to the suit, errors during the procedure left her with major injuries that eventually prompted the need to remove one of her kidneys.

The lawsuit states that the woman experienced severe pain and suffering for more than six years due to these errors, before eventually passing away due to her injuries. Those who suffer unnecessary harm during such an operation may experience a lesser quality of life for extended periods. Should the incident prove fatal, the victim's surviving loved ones may wish to know more about their options for pursuing accountability.

Losing a loved one can be a traumatic experience, especially when the loss comes as the result of negligence. Families who endure such loss may wish to exercise their rights to pursue restitution through the civil justice system, and they could choose to retain the services of an attorney for guidance in the process. An attorney can assist a client in Tennessee in seeking the compensation entitled through a medical malpractice claim against the party or parties deemed responsible.
