Most people associate the concept of amputation with drastic accident situations, such as injuries during war or a severe car accident. While amputations can be life-saving when they are medically necessary, but amputation accidents can occur as a result of medical malpractice and have a devastating and life-altering affect. Our medical malpractice attorneys in PA understand the seriousness of an amputation accident. The medical malpractice lawyers at The Levin Firm fight for their client to make a recovery in amputation medical malpractice cases.
There are a number of different types of amputation errors. A surgeon might remove the incorrect limb due to an error in the patient’s chart, negligent body marking, or the surgeon’s own error. A patient may be diagnosed with a condition that requires an amputation, but later found to not actually be suffering from that condition. It is even possible that amputations may be performed when less drastic measures, which would have preserved the limb, were not offered to the patient because they were too expensive or not covered by insurance.
The loss of a limb is a life-changing event. Victims may suffer a lifetime of pain, suffering and embarrassment, as well as the inability to engage in everyday activities and additional medical bills. If you or someone you love has undergone an amputation procedure as a result of medical malpractice, you need an attorney who will fight for your rights and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve to feel whole again.
Representing clients who have been victims of amputation errors requires a team of lawyers, nurses and others trained to review the facts of these cases, including medical records. It can be very difficult to prove that even the most serious amputation error is the result of medical malpractice. That’s why you need attorneys on your side to investigate medical records and find the best medical experts to examine the extent of your injuries. At The Levin Firm, we also work with highly-regarded experts to determine the type of medical malpractice and how and why it happened. At times, we will work with other law firms that have particular expertise to assure that our clients receive the most thorough and zealous representation.
When you need a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania or New Jersey personal injury attorney to represent you, a family member or friend who has fallen victim to an amputation error due to medical malpractice, contact The Levin Firm, who represent every client zealously in order to obtain the best results possible in each case.
