Representing Victims Of Brain And Spinal Surgery Errors
Any time a neurosurgeon operates on the brain or spine, the risks to the patient are high. While no doctor can promise that a surgery will be successful, we have a right to expect that the doctor will meet a reasonable standard of care.
If you have suffered a serious injury because a neurologist or neurosurgeon failed to meet a reasonable standard of care, you may have a case of medical malpractice against the doctor. At the law firm of Tucker & Miller in Phoenix, Arizona, our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case. Call us now at 602-870-5511.
Our lawyers handle all types of medical malpractice cases involving neurosurgery, including:
- Brain surgery errors, such as damaging a blood vessel in the brain, resulting in stroke or bleeding;
- Spinal surgery errors resulting in damage to nerves or the spinal cord; and
- Damage to major sense organs such as the eye during surgery.
Was My Neurosurgeon Negligent In Causing My Injury?
In some cases, there is nothing a doctor could have done to prevent a bad outcome. However, there are times when the patient’s injuries result from something the neurologist did wrong. Examples are failing to stabilize the vertebrae during spinal surgery, failing to refer a patient to an orthopedic surgeon when necessary or operating on a patient when the risks outweigh the benefits. When a neurologist makes mistakes, the unfortunate results could range from intransigent pain, blurred or lost vision, paralysis or even death.
