Robotic Surgery Malpractice: As in other areas of modern life, medical professionals place a lot of stock in technology, including devices designed to improve diagnosis of serious conditions including cancer. These diagnostic systems are growing increasingly precise; however, the decision on how to approach care still relies on the judgment of your physician. They have a duty to present you with complete information which can be used to best identify the next steps in care.
If you received a computer-assisted misdiagnosis and are suffering as a result, the NJ Medical Malpractice Attorneys at Gill & Chamas can help. Failure to properly diagnose problems can have serious consequences – especially in cases of breast and other kinds of fast-moving cancer, where lost time can impact one’s chances for survival. In cases like these, you and your family may be entitled to legal compensation for the pain and suffering that can result.
Gill and Chamas recently recovered a $6.25 million settlement for a women who experienced complications during a prolapsed surgery and hysterectomy. The plaintiff underwent surgery for the treatment of minor urinary incontinence, the loss of bladder control. During the robotic surgery, complications arose due to a tear of her transverse colon. She developed a systemic infection and underwent multiple surgical procedures. The plaintiff was represented by Peter Chamas and Robert Adinolfi. Her lawsuit claimed the surgeon deviated from the standard of care by failing to convert from a laparoscopic procedure to an open one when complications developed. Unfortunately accidents like this do occur and it is important to have the best representation on your side. At Gill and Chamas our medical malpractice attorneys will work tirelessly toward getting you the compensation you deserve.
