Are You Suffering As a Result of Gastric Bypass Errors?
Gastric bypass surgery is a common procedure, but if you’re suffering from ailments as a result of gastric bypass errors, and are therefore unable to work or otherwise function, you will need to enlist the aid of a trusted personal injury attorney like the ones found at Morowitz Law. For more than 30 years, our attorneys have been working with Rhode Island residents to fight for their rights and get the justice – and the money – they deserve.
What are the most common gastric bypass errors?
Despite the fact that gastric bypass surgery is a common procedure, gastric bypass errors are common. Some of the many ways that your gastric bypass surgery can go wrong include, but are certainly not limited to, the following:
- Your surgeon isn’t experienced in the procedure. If you happen to get a surgeon that’s new to the world of bariatric surgery, he or she may make a mistake in the procedure, not out of malice, but out of inexperience. That doesn’t lessen its impact on you, however, so if you’re the unfortunate victim of an inexperienced surgeon, you will need to contact a Rhode Island personal injury attorney like the ones found at Morowitz Law to handle your case immediately.
- Your surgeon fails to pre-qualify you for the procedure. Before you undergo gastric bypass surgery – or surgery of any kind, really – your surgeon needs to pre-qualify you for the surgery. What that means is, your surgeon needs to make sure that you are medically healthy in order to go “under the knife.” If he or she fails to do so, you could suffer the consequences of this negligence.
- Your surgeon fails to properly identify and treat any post-surgery complications, such as an embolism, a bleed, or a leakage. These, obviously, are the most common of all gastric bypass errors, but the results can be dangerous, and possibly deadly.
These are just a few of the many things that could go wrong during your bariatric procedure. Whether you’re getting the surgery because of medical reasons, or you’re getting the surgery because of cosmetic reasons, you deserve to get proper treatment before, and after, the surgery, so you don’t suffer any after-effects. If your doctor fails to do so, you deserve to have an attorney who is willing to fight for your rights and get the compensation you deserve as a result of your doctor’s failure to properly treat you.
