Measuring Risk Against Need
While it is true that certain kinds of surgery are inherently risky, doctors should perform due diligence before undertaking any procedure. Working with surgical experts, our malpractice lawyers carefully review whether or not a doctor failed to account for all possibilities, to measure the amount of risk involved against the likelihood of success. Cases involving high levels of danger involve negligence in when they expose patients to procedures and techniques that have little or no chance for success.
Understanding the Consequences of Surgical Error
At the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd, we use computer animation and computer simulation to explain the difficult issues and surgical procedures involved. Additionally, we create day-in-the-life videos that demonstrate what our clients have to go through on a daily basis as a result of their injury. Providing jurors with a picture of what a client’s life was like before the devastating consequences of a surgical error provides them with a measure of how much has been taken away from them by physician negligence.
We help clients achieve justice by demanding accountability from negligent doctors in a court of law and demanding compensation for pain and suffering that could have been avoided.
