New York Bariatric Surgery Lawyer

Advocating for Your Rights and Recovery: Experienced New York Bariatric Surgery Lawyers

 

Bariatric surgery treats morbid obesity by creating a small pouch that serves as the "new" stomach and attaching it to bypass part of the intestine. As a result of the smaller pouch, only a small amount of food can be consumed, and the bypassed intestine absorbs fewer calories. The bypass also alters the signals that travel from the stomach to the brain resulting in impressive weight loss and control of health issues. 

 

However, bariatric surgery introduces new risks when reshaping the stomach, such as leaks which can lead to sepsis. This could be the result of medical malpractice, and your doctor should be held accountable. If you have been injured due to gastric bypass errors, the medical malpractice attorneys at Curan & Ahlers in New York may be able to assist you.

 

Common Legal Issues with Bariatric Surgery

 

Bariatric surgery has risks from complications, unsuitable patients, and even malpractice. Some causes of malpractice stem from surgical errors, a failure to diagnose or treat complications, etc. Due to doctor negligence, some bariatric operations cause damage or death. Gastric bypass patients may need a malpractice lawsuit if the doctor was negligent and caused an injury. 

 

In other malpractice cases, doctors offer this treatment without advising patients of the hazards. Gastric bypass and other bariatric operations can help people lose weight, but they can also cause gastritis, intestinal blockage, hemorrhage, bleeding, anastomotic ulcers, strictures, and hernia. Bacterial contamination can cause severe and rapid infections in all procedures. 

 

Surgical errors include failing to diagnose or manage gastric bleeding, gastric fluid seeping into the abdominal cavity, peritonitis, pulmonary embolism, internal hernia, or poor post-operative patient monitoring. Medical malpractice happens when a doctor deviates from the standard of care. Malpractice can occur if the surgeon, hospital, or operating team is sloppy, inept, or negligent. 

 

Why You Need a New York Bariatric Surgery Lawyer

 

If it is likely, you can get compensatory damages for your provider not giving you the professional standard of care, breach, causation, or damages. Without the knowledge to investigate these claims, you need to hire a lawyer to determine if you have a case. Your attorney should also review the facts of your case with at least one doctor licensed to practice in New York or another state. 

 

A complicated set of rules governs medical malpractice law. The injured patient bears the burden of proof in a successful claim, so having a skilled gastric bypass medical malpractice lawyer on your side is critical. If you or a loved one has been injured or died due to bariatric or weight loss surgery, we may be able to assist you.

 

How a New York Bariatric Surgery Lawyer Can Help You

 

Often, people are not aware of the applicable laws, or they lack the time or resources to learn the elements that must be demonstrated to establish a case. A bariatric surgery lawyer can launch an investigation to help build your case. An attorney will be able to guide you through the process of proving a claim for bariatric surgery malpractice. 

 

Additionally, an attorney may also advocate on your behalf for relief in the form of legal damages, to which you may be entitled. They can also negotiate with your insurance company to ensure you get what you are entitled to without denied claims and excessive wait times. Because these claims have time limits, it is best to contact an attorney as soon as possible so that you have the best chance of receiving the compensation to which you may be entitled.
