Vascular Surgery Negligence Claims Attorney
Vascular surgeons specialize in diagnosing and treating disorders that involve the blood vessels in the body. Often, they are called upon to complete delicate surgeries to remove deadly blood clots or restore circulation to vital organs. When poor decisions are made in the diagnostic, treatment or surgical realm of this specialty, serious injuries or death can occur. Patients who have been injured due to medical negligence by a vascular surgeon can seek compensation for medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering and other damages through a medical malpractice claim.
The circulatory system is complex and requires expertise when diagnosing and treating disorders. Vascular surgeons often work closely with other specialty physicians to treat a wide variety of vascular-related issues. The kidneys and other organs rely on adequate blood flow to function properly. If mistakes are made in treating vascular disorders, it can lead to kidney failure, embolisms, stroke and loss of limbs. It is vital that vascular surgeons perform their duty to protect their patients through accurate diagnosis, competent treatments and careful performance of needed surgeries.
Injuries Caused by Vascular Surgeon Errors
Like all physicians, vascular surgeons are expected to perform their duties on par with the skills and knowledge of any other doctor in their field. When a vascular surgeon overlooks key symptoms indicating a blood clot or makes surgical errors, they can cause life-altering consequences for their patients. Some possible mistakes that can cause harm or death in a patient include:
- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis of a vascular disorder
- Surgical errors including wrong incisions and inappropriate anesthesia
- Nerve damage
- Delayed treatment resulting in organ failure, stroke or loss of limb
- Not ordering the correct diagnostic tests or imaging
