Our robotic surgery injury lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire file lawsuits and claims relating to injuries caused during a robotic surgery or procedure. According to reports, more and more surgeries are being performed robotically which included 400,000 da Vinci robotic surgeries in 2012. Many patients suffer serious harm due to errors and mistakes during these surgeries.
Robotic surgery is being used to perform less invasive surgeries across the United States including:
- Gallbladder Surgery
- Spleen Surgery
- Head & Neck Surgery
- Kidney Transplant Surgery
- Weight Loss Surgery
- Removing Prostate Surgery
- Repairing Heart Valve Surgery
Many things can go wrong in any type of surgery, it is important to know the risks of robotic surgery. Common robotic surgery complications include:
- Tears and/or burns of the intestines
- Punctured blood vessels
- Cut ureters
- Severe bowel injuries
- Vaginal cuff dehiscence
- Excessive bleeding
Many of these complications are due to either surgeon error or a malfunction in the robotic device. When a patient is harmed due to medical negligence, this gives rise to a medical malpractice lawsuit or a defective product lawsuit. Our attorneys will carefully review your medical records and discuss your treatment with a board-certified surgeon to see if a medical mistake caused your injuries.
If were harmed due to an error, we will file a medical malpractice lawsuit on your behalf. These cases seek damages for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, disability, and other types of compensation. In cases involving the death of the patient, we file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the surviving family members.
