Man alleges surgical errors led to quadriparesis, sues for $1M

Most patients in Washington, D.C. are aware that surgeries – even the most minor ones – carry at least some degree of risk. Human bodies can be unpredictable. What should not be unpredictable, though, is the standard of care to which surgeons are expected to adhere, because when surgical errors occur, the results can be devastating.

A man in another state has filed a lawsuit alleging surgical errors resulted in his severe, disabling and permanent injuries. According to the plaintiff, he underwent surgery at the spinal center due to his neck pain. Shortly thereafter, he claims he began feeling a heaviness in his legs. The plaintiff subsequently underwent three additional surgeries, but the quadriparesis did not improve.

The injured patient wishes to hold liable the surgeon who performed the procedure, as well as the surgical center and neurosurgery clinic where the doctor was employed. The lawsuit accuses the physician, Spinetech Neurosurgery and Brain and Spine Center of Southeast Texas PLLC, et al. of negligence and other counts, claiming that they failed to adhere to the standard of care. The man is seeking damages of more than $1 million, in addition to legal fees and special relief.

Medical malpractice lawsuits, even those involving clear instances of surgical errors, are sometimes difficult to win in court, but for suffering victims, the financial compensation awarded in a successfully litigated case is almost essential. Not only is there the pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment to consider -- among a variety of other factors -- but many doctor errors result in the need for long-term, ongoing and expensive medical care. In such instances in Washington, D.C., the advice and support of an experienced medical malpractice attorney can prove key to securing a positive outcome.
