Finding out that you need surgery can be a hard time for a patient and their families. Complications can arise, recovery can be long and difficult and the strain on loved ones can even lead to broken families and bitter divorce.
Doctors and surgeons, either from the result of negligence or sometimes even outright fraud, can push patients into surgeries they never needed in the first place. Regardless of the circumstances, the best possible legal result is dependent on a thorough legal investigation and aggressive, skilled and knowledgeable negotiation and litigation.
The attorneys of the New York law firm of Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP have handled complex medical malpractice cases for almost four decades and can effectively pursue the best possible result following an unnecessary surgery.
We have handled cases involving:
Our client submitted to surgery for the removal of uterine fibroids. During the procedure the surgeon mistakenly removed one of her kidneys, believing it was a fibroid.
Our investigation yielded evidence of negligence, including a video of the laparoscopic procedure showing the removal of the healthy organ. The defendant refused to make a fair offer in negotiations and we took the case to trial. The result was a jury verdict of $2.8 million.
