Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Person standing behind doctor with arms crossed postoperative medical negligence lawyers Washington, DCIf you have suffered from a doctor’s negligence, it may be in your best interest to contact postoperative medical negligence lawyers Washington, DC that medical negligence victims recommend. They may be able to find out if you have a legal claim to monetary compensation.

Postoperative care is the care the patient receives after surgery. It involves medical care that is necessary during the recovery phase, post surgery. Common problems that may arise due to complications are infections and blood clots. There is a “standard of medical care” that medical professionals are supposed to adhere to during this phase of care. If a patient suffers due to negligence or lacking care that could have prevented their suffering, the patient may be entitled to compensation. Post operative medical negligence lawyers may be able to help you claim your fair share of legal compensation.

Infection is often a very likely occurrence after surgery. It is the duty of the medical staff to check their patients’ vital signs, perform wound cleaning, change bandages, sanitize all equipment used and follow the necessary protocols to prevent infection post surgery. In many cases, due to postoperative negligence, these steps are not followed rigorously and lead to infection. This can delay recovery, and may even cause lifelong debilitating injury and pain. Finding a good legal team to help you navigate the confusing path to claiming your legal compensation need not be difficult. Post operative medical negligence lawyers in Washington DC may be able to help you with your case.

As a patient, it is important for you to know that your doctor owes a duty to you in offering postoperative care to the same standards as are expected during surgery. The levels of care needed may vary according to the severity of intrusive trauma caused during surgery. Unfortunately, there are instances where even relatively minor surgical operations that require relatively simple postoperative care may lead to major complications if the postoperative care is negligent. In such cases, it is the patient’s legal right to seek compensation for the trauma and prolonged suffering caused. Post operative medical negligence lawyers are here to help.

Post operative complications need to be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. It has been seen in many cases that a patient’s complaints indicated a complication or that a surgical procedure may have been unsuccessful. When ignored or not paid heed when needed, it resulted in exacerbation of problems negatively affecting patient health. If this has happened to you, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with a good postoperative negligence lawyer.

A failure to provide basic care such as, not changing bandages appropriately, a failure to check for infection, or a failure to provide adequate instructions to the patient during recovery may lead to drastic outcomes and increase pain and suffering for the patient. If you have suffered because of medical negligence, please contact postoperative medical negligence lawyers in Washington, DC at Cohen & Cohen.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
