When surgical carelessness or negligence is involved, Fellerman & Ciarimboli should be involved.
All surgery carries a certain level of risk. Patients learn of the associated risks when asked to review and sign a statement of informed consent. You or someone in your family may have been asked to sign a statement of consent, which protects the healthcare provider from liability when a procedure is performed to a specific, accepted standard of care.
In some cases, the standard of care is compromised because of poor communication, healthcare professional fatigue, or the wrong dosage of anesthesia. In other cases, sponges or instruments are left in the patient’s body. And in extreme cases, surgery is performed on the wrong body part or the wrong patient.
When carelessness or negligence is involved, Fellerman & Ciarimboli should be involved. You and your family may require additional medical care as the result of a surgical error, and you may experience loss of income because of the error. Each situation is unique.
