Orthopedic Injuries

Handling Avoidable Orthopedic Complications

Peoria, Illinois, Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Like all surgeries, orthopedic surgery involves some form of risk for the patient and the surgeon. When mistakes are made, they can lead to painful and often devastating consequences, including death.

Malpractice related to orthopedic complications typically involves further damage to a patient's health after surgery or another medical treatment has been performed to address a problem.

At Nicoara & Steagall, we are dedicated to helping individuals and families who have suffered injury resulting from negligence by doctors, nurses or other health care professionals.

Common Orthopedic Injuries Involving Medical Malpractice Include:

  • Blood clots - post-surgical bleeding and vein issues
  • Thrombosis - deep vein blood clots
  • Pulmonary embolism - dislodged clot blocking blood flow to the lungs
  • Fractures - mistreatment of broken bones in arms and legs
  • Amputation - infections resulting in loss of a limb
  • Arthroscopic complications - during or following knee surgery
  • Nerve damage - injuries during surgery

Whether an orthopedic complication was triggered by surgical errors or a failure to adhere to minimum standards of care and treatment during the post-surgical process, our experienced attorneys can help. We have a strong scientific background, a network of experts from some of the country's top medical schools, and the legal and trial experience to make a difference in the outcome of your medical malpractice case.
