For women in the United States, hysterectomy is one of the most commonly performed major surgeries – second only to caesarian section. Over 600,000 women have hysterectomies in our country every year, though some medical professionals believe many of these are unnecessary. Improper diagnosis or unnecessary surgery are both forms of medical malpractice. If you believe you have had an unnecessary procedure, our Dallas hysterectomy malpractice attorneys can help. Call us at 972-230-6200 to schedule a free consultation and learn more.
All hysterectomies, regardless of their necessity, come with certain risks. These include:
- Injury to the uterus
- Injury to the bladder
- Bowl or intestinal perforation
- Intestinal obstruction
- Vaginal granulation (scarring on the top of the vagina)
- Postoperative bleeding
These complications are present during all hysterectomies, but not all women are fully informed of the risks. If you were not informed about possible risks and complications, your healthcare provider has failed you – an oversight which may entitle you to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages. Our Dallas hysterectomy malpractice lawyers will review your case free of charge, determine if negligence occurred, and hold accountable any medical professional who has violated your rights, jeopardized your safety, and placed you in danger of serious or even fatal complications.
Everyone involved in surgical procedures is liable for his or her actions. When negligence, carelessness, inexperience, or sheer disregard place a patient in danger, consequences must follow. At Polewski & Associates, our Dallas medical malpractice attorneys bring decades of experience and a complete dedication to justice into every case we take. Our board-certified trial specialist and medical malpractice team are prepared to hold negligent healthcare providers accountable, helping secure maximum compensation for you while protecting others from the dangers of thoughtless and careless doctors, nurses, and hospital staff.
If you have suffered complications following your hysterectomy, you may have cause to file a medical malpractice suit. Please contact Polewski & Associates today to schedule a free consultation and learn more.
