Chicago Medical Malpractice Attorneys Well-Versed In Postoperative Care Errors Cases

After surgery, a medical team is supposed to be present to observe a patient for any signs of bleeding or other distress. An accidental perforation of an artery or internal organ can result in life-threatening complications, including internal bleeding and dangerous infections. If a medical device such as a stent or pacemaker was implanted as part of the surgery, medical staff must be vigilant for signs of blockage or equipment failure.

At the Chicago law firm of Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd., we fight for the interests of individuals and families who have been hurt as a result of negligent postoperative care. Since 1955, our attorneys have been holding doctors, nurses and other hospital staff accountable for their medical errors. We know how to assess your claim, and we will not settle for anything less than what your claim is worth.

Illinois Lawyers Helping Families Recover From Medical Error Malpractice

Right after surgery, a nurse is responsible for monitoring a patient. The nurse is responsible for immediately communicating any increase in heart rate, drop in blood pressure, swelling in the abdomen or other signs of distress with a doctor.

Surgical mistakes don’t always show up immediately. It can take days, weeks or even longer for complications to become apparent. Surgeons, cardiologists and hospitals are responsible for monitoring a patient after a surgical procedure, including reviewing follow-up EKGs. Inadequate care following a procedure can result in life-altering injuries and may even be fatal.

You may not be able to know whether your injury was caused by malpractice. Our lawyers are adept at handling a variety of postoperative malpractice cases and can evaluate your case to determine whether your injury was caused by medical negligence. We represent individuals hurt as a result of medical errors, including those caused by:

  • A failure to adequately monitor vital signs
  • A failure to follow postoperative patient care instructions
  • A failure to detect and diagnose post-surgical complications
  • A failure to treat infections
  • A failure to prevent and treat blood clots
  • A failure to administer medications properly
