Bowel Injury Caused by Hernia Repair Surgery

On Behalf of | Mar 4, 2019 | Firm News, Medical Malpractice |

Hernia repairs, as well as other abdominal surgeries, require pinpoint surgical dissection. A common side effect is an injury to the bowels caused by the inadvertent nicking or laceration of the bowels. These risks of surgery are usually addresses in a consent form prior to surgery, signed by the patient either at the physician’s office or hospital prior to surgery. As such, a bowel injury is not necessarily a claim for medical malpractice . A claim for malpractice usually arises from the failure of the physician or the hospital to recognize a bowel injury has occurred that allows for a permanent and sometimes deadly injury due to the untreated bowel perforation.

If you, or someone you know is suffering from an injury as a result of an accident or error caused by negligence of another, then we hope you will contact a competent attorney for representation.
