Sadly, you are not alone. Despite the emergence of new, better medical technology, human error still accounts for too many medical errors and surgical mistakes. Recently, a Virginia woman was undergoing what should have been a standard hysterectomy. However, her life and health were forever altered when her surgeon used his hands to tear holes in her bladder and intestine. Instead of using the proper surgical equipment the doctor made a terrible choice, causing the woman much pain and suffering.
As Virginia Beach medical malpractice attorneys we wish we could tell you that this is an isolated incident. However, all too often, doctors make terrible, irreversible errors; leading to years of further medical treatments, disability, even death.
What can be done?
While some medical errors can be avoided, many times we must trust that the doctor we choose will not make a mistake during our treatment or surgery. When a medical error does occur, it is the responsibility of the patients family or the patient themselves to hold the doctor responsible for their actions.
