JEFFERSON PARISH PATIENT SUES DOCTOR FOR EMERGENCY ROOM MALPRACTICE

A man filed suit against a doctor who performed surgery on him. The man said that he had been seeing blood in his urine for the past few weeks. He claimed that he went to the emergency room because of this, and that he left the hospital with one less kidney due to the doctor’s negligence. According to the lawsuit, he was taken to a doctor who was to conduct exploratory surgery, ready to remove a bladder tumor if necessary. Once in surgery, the doctor is said to have carelessly caused an injury to the ureter. This led the doctor to remove the man’s kidney.

This man alleges that the surgery did not uncover a tumor, or any cause whatsoever for blood being present in his urine. Among other accusations, the man is also charging the doctor with not inspecting him correctly, not realizing that he had created an injury, and for not getting the man’s informed consent for the removal of his kidney. The man also accuses the doctor of botching the surgery and excluding alternatives to removing the kidney. He is suing for damages that include pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and emotional distress.

Medical mistakes in an emergency room may sometimes require special criteria to qualify as medical malpractice, but the essentials of such a case are the same here as anywhere else in the hospital. If you have been harmed by the negligence of a doctor or another medical professional, then you may be entitled to compensation. This can enable you to face that mounting pile of medical bills, and it could make up for lost salary. Find out what your claim might be worth when you contact Morris & Dewett Injury Lawyers.
