No surgical procedure — no matter how “routine” — is without risk. However, every healthcare professional involved in the procedure, including doctors, nurses, operating room staff and hospital administrators, should take every step to prevent avoidable mistakes that could result in harm to the patient. When healthcare professionals fail to take these steps and a patient is injured as a result of a surgical error, a medical malpractice lawsuit may become necessary for the patient to collect damages for the injuries caused by the error.
If you were injured due to a mistake during surgery, you have a right to pursue compensation for your injuries. The Houston surgical error attorneys at Ricardo N. Gonzales & Associates are here to protect your rights and pursue your case until the responsible parties agree to a fair and equitable settlement. We will fight aggressively to help you obtain the compensation you deserve for the medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering resulting from the negligent actions of a healthcare professional or healthcare facility.
