Los Angeles Surgical Injuries Lawyer
When surgeons operate on patients, they are expected to operate with a level of skill, expertise and care possessed and practiced by other surgeons in the same or similar community and circumstances. However, when surgeons are inattentive, careless or fatigued, they may cause serious or fatal injuries during surgery.
The Law Offices of Michael Oran, A.P.C., represents individuals in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California in surgical injury lawsuits. With more than 30 years of medical malpractice and personal injury experience, attorney Michael Oran provides the personalized service individuals need at every step of the process.
Identifying And Addressing Mistakes Before And During Surgery
Surgeries correctly performed can improve a patient’s quality of life. However, the results can be catastrophic when surgeons perform surgery that is unnecessary or if they perform the surgery incorrectly. For example, when a surgeon cuts something unintentionally and fails to recognize the damage, it can cause permanent harm.
Attorney Michael Oran handles a range of surgical error cases caused by mistakes before, during and after surgery, including:
- Performing surgery improperly
- Failing to notice unintended damage to anatomical structures
- Performing unnecessary surgery
- Failing to adequately warn patients about surgical risks and side effects
- Failing to be fully knowledgeable about the human anatomy
- Performing surgery on the wrong body part
- Leaving surgical instruments in the body
- Giving the wrong amount or wrong kind of anesthesia
