Postoperative Negligence Attorney in Washington, D.C.

Representing Injured Individuals & Their Families across the U.S.

Although most surgeries are quite safe, most people are understandably apprehensive about undergoing a surgical procedure. It’s normal to feel anxious about putting your life in the hands of a surgical team. For many patients, it’s the loss of control and consciousness that makes surgery so intimidating. You’re never more vulnerable than you are during a surgery.

Medical negligence is now the third leading cause of death in the United States, and many of these deaths occur during surgery and in the period immediately following a surgery. Hospitals are busy places, and many doctors have too many patients to truly spend quality time following up with each one. Far too often, patients get shuttled to the side after a surgery, where they are not properly monitored for possible complications.

At LawMD, we help victims of postoperative negligence. Our medical malpractice lawyers, many of whom are also licensed medical professionals, assist families who have lost a loved one due to a hospital’s negligence or a doctor’s mistake after surgery. Our clients trust us to help them get the compensation and closure they deserve after a postoperative error.

Why We Are Different

There are many law firms who say they accept medical malpractice cases. Many of these firms are personal injury law firms who take the occasional medical negligence case. At LawMD, medical malpractice is all we do. Our skilled attorney is also a physician. We know the law, and we also have the education and experience to understand medicine from a clinician’s point of view. These are qualities we put to work for our clients. Medical malpractice cases are the most complicated and technical of all personal injury cases. When your health and your financial security are at stake, trust your case to our physician-attorney.

Postoperative Mistakes

The hours and days following a surgical procedure are just as critical as the surgery itself. It’s imperative that hospitals, doctors, and nurses monitor patients for signs of infection and other serious complications, such as blood clots, respiratory distress, and bleeding.

The postoperative error lawyers at LawMD have helped thousands of patients who have suffered postoperative complications due to a doctor’s negligence.

We handle all types of postoperative negligence cases, including:

  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Pneumonia and related complications
  • Hemorrhage
  • Sepsis
  • Wound dehiscence
  • Incisional hernia
  • Hospital-acquired infections
  • Keloids
  • Paralytic ileus

We have also helped people who have required a second surgery or other procedures to correct health conditions that developed due to a lack of adequate care following an initial operation.

Because many of our lawyers have backgrounds in medicine, we know how frustrating it is for a patient to experience complications following a surgery. In many cases, patients don’t get the help they need, either because doctors explain their symptoms or simply ignore their concerns. If you have been brushed off or told it’s all in your head, we can fight for justice on your behalf. Postoperative negligence is something no one should ever have to endure.

WHY YOU MAY BENEFIT FROM A DOCTOR IN YOUR COURTROOM

  • WE UNDERSTAND YOUR INJURIES, BECAUSE WE’VE LIKELY TREATED THEM.

    Most of our physician-attorneys are either current or past treating doctors in, collectively, a wide range of medical specialties. There is a good chance one or more of our physician attorneys have actually treated medical conditions similar to the ones from which you or your loved one now suffers. That translates into care and understanding as your Counselors, and know-how as your Advocates.

  • TIME- AND COST-SAVINGS FOR YOUR CASE

    Any honest medical malpractice attorney will tell you that one of the greatest expenses in a medical malpractice case is having to pay physician experts to study the details of the medical issues in your case and, if necessary, provide testimony at deposition and trial. While even our physician attorneys may also need to hire outside medical experts for your case, our medical know-how allows us to perform a significant amount of the medical analysis necessary for your case in-house which may translate into significant savings at the conclusion of your case.

  • RAPID RESPONSE WITH SOLID ANSWERS TO YOUR SERIOUS QUESTIONS REGARDING YOUR CASE

    Because we have in-house medical know-how, we can evaluate the medical questions in your case and provide answers without a lengthy wait. Our internal process involves getting the issues in your case quickly in front of the right physician attorney who, based on his or her medical experience and training, is most likely to have the answers you seek about whether you have a case and how we might help you get the compensation you deserve to help secure a brighter future for you and for your loved ones.
