Philadelphia Post-Surgical Error Attorney
Post-surgical errors often occur because hospital staff and doctors fail to properly monitor or follow-up on a patient’s condition. When medication isn’t administered properly or monitoring of vitals is neglected, serious, life-threatening complications can occur as a result. MyPhillyLawyer works closely with medical experts and investigators in exposing hospital and physician negligence in cases of post-surgical errors and complications. Our lawyers subpoena staffing reports and medical charts in order to create a timeline of when a patient’s status was checked, by whom, and for how long. We cross reference testimony with what records indicate in order to expose negligence, breakdowns in communication, and a failure to address symptoms as soon as they began to appear.

The Cost of Medical Complications After Surgery
Medical complications after surgery often involve short-term disability, as well as additional medical treatment. Our attorneys work with economists and medical experts in determining the cost of your injuries in terms of lost wages, pain and suffering, and additional medical care. When gross negligence is involved – for example, complications resulting from poor follow-up care or a lack of patient monitoring – we seek punitive damages as well. Since hospitals are licensed and regulated by the state and federal government, specific treatment protocols and standards must be followed. When they are not, hospitals and health care providers can be held financially liable.
