Lawsuit accuses pain management specialist of surgical errors

Anyone in Washington, D.C. who has undergone surgery or has a family member or loved one who needed an operation likely knows just how worrisome the process can be. Even in relatively routine procedures, a lot can go wrong, as there are inherent risks and sometimes unforeseeable complications. However, surgical errors and mistakes are another matter entirely, one with which patients should not need to concern themselves.

Unfortunately, the way things should be doesn't always align with the way things are. In another state, a patient has recently filed a medical malpractice suit, alleging surgical errors caused him to suffer physical pain because of a medical procedure performed by a doctor at a pain management consulting and specialist practice. The formal complaint alleges that the patient consulted the defendant regarding a bulging disc in his neck. The doctor then allegedly recommended a procedure called a left cervical selective nerve root block.

However, when the doctor performed the procedure he had recommended, he injured the patient, according to the complaint. The plaintiff claims that the doctor is liable because of the allegedly substandard medical care. For his pain and suffering that resulted from the purportedly botched treatment, the plaintiff is seeking damages with interest and further relief.

Any residents of Washington, D.C. or the surrounding area who have similarly suffered significant pain or harm due to surgical errors or a physician's mistakes or negligence may also be entitled to compensation. A successfully litigated medical malpractice lawsuit can result in an award of damages to help pay for future medical expensive and past treatment costs, as well as the injured victim's pain and suffering. The representation of an experienced medical malpractice attorney often proves crucial to securing a positive outcome.
