What are some common surgical errors?

Before your surgery, your surgeon should inform you of the potential complications and risks that you may experience. Every surgery is potentially dangerous due to the possibility of unforeseen complications, but dangers like surgical errors are highly preventable. Some of the most common types of surgical errors include performing a procedure on the wrong body part, nerve damage, and leaving foreign objects (such as medical devices) in the body. These serious errors can cause further injuries and illness. If you were the victim of medical malpractice due to surgical error, you may be eligible for necessary financial compensation for your extensive medical expenses. An experienced personal injury attorney with Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck P.A. may help you seek compensation for your pain and suffering caused by a negligent surgeon.

How can I show that a defective product led to my injury?

If you sustained injuries that were caused by a defective or dangerous product, you may be able to file for damages from the responsible manufacturer. A product liability claim seeks to gain compensation for your suffering and medical expenses associated with the injury from the responsible parties. Unfortunately, the process of proving that a product was liable for your injuries can be difficult. Many manufacturing companies may attempt to claim a consumer misused their product and were at fault for their own injury.

An experienced product liability lawyer may be able to help you prove to the court that a manufacturer was negligent and accountable for your injury. The experienced attorneys at Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck P.A., are prepared to answer your questions and discuss your specific case.

Who is eligible to pursue a claim for wrongful death?

Wrongful death claims are intended to help the families of fatal accident victims that were killed due to the reckless or negligent actions of another party. The financial compensation resulting from a successful wrongful death claim is meant to support the immediate family of the deceased with any financial challenges or suffering that results from the accident. Due to this, wrongful death claims are generally restricted to the immediate family of the victim. However, there may be some exceptions in which another involved individual may be eligible to claim wrongful death.

An experienced attorney may be able to help establish and clarify if you are eligible to file for wrongful death. Call Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck P.A., at (561) 689-8180 today to learn more.
