Post-Surgical Complications

One of the most daunting aspects of surgery is the threat of postoperative pain and other issues. While there are certain post-surgical risks that are unfortunately unavoidable, there are also numerous complications that can be prevented with thorough, attentive medical care. These complications can vary widely in severity, but even the most minor can be uncomfortable and significantly delay one’s recovery.

At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, we believe that negligent surgical teams and hospital staff members should be held responsible should they cause Rhinelander patients to suffer post-surgical complications. Our attorneys can help you evaluate your situation and determine if you are eligible to seek compensation.

Common Post-Surgical Complications

The effort to minimize postoperative complications should start even before a patient undergoes surgery, as hospitals and surgical teams should carefully plan procedures and create as safe and sterile an environment as possible. During surgery, surgeons must perform their delicate work carefully, avoiding unnecessary cuts and other actions.

Sadly, the appropriate care is not always taken, and patients can suffer complications such as the following:

  • Shock
  • Hemorrhage
  • Blood clots
  • Infections, including sepsis
  • Pneumonia

In these situations, victims of surgical errors and post-surgical complications should not have to cover their additional medical bills on their own. The negligent doctor or party at fault may be obligated to compensate the patient for his or her extra treatment costs and lost wages during recovery.
