No one is more vulnerable than a surgical patient. Fatal errors can occur at any stage: as the admitting nurse takes a patient’s history, in the administration of pre-op drugs and anesthesia, in the operating room, and in the post-surgical recovery room. Surgeons, anesthesiologists, and hospitals are well-compensated for procedures. Too often, however, surgical negligence causes serious injury or death.

Attorneys at Broussard & Hart, L.L.C., our Lake Charles personal injury firm, have extensive experience in handling medical malpractice claims stemming from anesthesia and surgical errors. If you suspect unnecessary surgical complications caused brain damage, paralysis, or another permanent injury, or wrongful death to someone you love, it is important to hold those responsible accountable, and recover the compensation you need to take care of yourself and your family. If you would like to discuss a surgical error claim with one of our lawyers, please contact our Lake Charles office and arrange a free, confidential consultation. We are prepared to handle a wide variety of claims for surgical negligence, including those involving the following:

  • Laparoscopic surgery, including gall bladder surgery and orthopedic surgery
  • Cesarean sections and other obstetric surgery
  • Post-surgical infection, including hospital-acquired staff infections
  • Unnecessary surgery, unnecessary dental extractions
  • Anesthesia malpractice, including over-sedation and failure to clear an airway obstruction
  • Bariatric weight-loss surgery, including laparascopic gastric bypass
  • Lasik eye surgery
  • Cosmetic surgery
  • Oral surgery

Surgical malpractice cases can be lengthy, expensive, and difficult. Our firm has the resources to support our attorneys and successfully challenge those interests on behalf of our clients. We only accept a few cases, and then we give them our focused attention for as long as it takes.
