Have you been injured during surgery? If so, you’re not alone.  Although the majority of the thousands of surgeries that are performed each day in the United States are uneventful, there are a growing number of patients that end up with injuries during surgery.  If you have sustained a surgical injury, you should contact Siben & Siben Long Island surgical injury lawyers right away to protect your rights and file a claim against the responsible party.  Siben & Siben has a long history of helping their clients to recover compensation, with over a billion dollars in compensation being won in past decades.  There is a good chance that your surgical injury could lead to a large cash award.

Types of Surgical Injuries

Although there are a number of ways that a patient can become injured during a surgical procedure, the most common types of surgical injuries include tissue tearing, anesthesia related complications, hemorrhages and bleeding problems, peroration of vital organs, fractures, and neurological injuries.  Surgical injuries can also result from errors on the part of the surgeon.  And although there are certain assumed risks with any surgery, complications are more common during particular procedures, like gastric bypass surgery, laparoscopic intestinal surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, childbirth, and plastic surgery.

Surgical Injury Claims

Your Long Island surgical injury lawyer can assess your individual circumstances to help you understand the true worth of your surgical injury claim.  Your claim might include damages for:

  • Medical expenses

Siben & Siben’s team of legal experts can properly evaluate the surgical injury that you have sustained and get the claims process started.  Keep in mind that the statute of limitations for surgical injuries is limited.  This means you have only a particularly amount of time to file suit against the at-fault surgeon and his insurer.  Your Long Island surgical injury lawyer will fight for your rights until you are made whole again.
