Surgeries are common procedures that are performed with the intention of partially or fully restoring a person’s health. Regardless of the level of complexity, due to all of the implications that surgeries carry, they pose a quite scary and stressful scenario. Even under the notion that doctors do everything right, all bodies are different from one another and can react to the same surgery in diametrically diverse ways.
Although you enter the surgery room with the full conviction that the professionals that are assisting you will do everything correctly, events can take unfortunate turns at times.
Sometimes doctors do incur mistakes that could injure you or even put your life at peril. Some injuries also constitute years’ worth of recovery ahead of you when complications ensue.
If you or a loved one have been on the recipient end of medical malpractice, you know how much of an ordeal this can be.
Given that medical professionals owe their patients a duty of care, any form of medical malpractice becomes a breach of duty. This poses a serious threat to the patient’s well-being, and they have the right to be compensated for the damages. So, whenever you have to endure this, it is in your best interest to attain legal counseling and guidance.
At Ganim Legal P.C. we have over 30 years of experience in dealing with surgery injuries claims. We are the ones to safeguard your interests when you or a close one have been subjected to any form of medical malpractice.
What Defines Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence is when medical professionals fail at fulfilling the obligations that are inherent to their jobs. When the duty of care becomes dissatisfied, it can be labeled as negligence.
Furthermore, in many cases, medical negligence can lead to medical malpractice. When a breach of duty of care is present, and there are also damages being done to the patient as a direct consequence of the personnel’s actions, this is categorized as medical malpractice.
These are some examples of medical negligence:
- Failure to order or perform pertinent medical testing
- Failure to monitor a patient
- Mistakes involving anesthesia
- Incorrect prescription of medicine
- Wrong choice of treatment
- Misuse of medical devices
- Leaving surgical instruments inside the patient’s body by mistake
If you or a close relative or friend have endured any of these difficulties, you must get legal assistance promptly, as it is very likely that you have been a victim of medical malpractice.

How Long Do Claims Take?
Once we can decide upon what claims can be demanded, we act in consequence as promptly as possible. Swift outcomes are crucial when there are cases of medical negligence in between.
In general, you have 3 years since the incident happened to make your claim. This is also known as the limitation period, which starts from the moment the negligence effectively took place—also known as “primary limitation”—or the date when you became aware of your situation regarding the event—also referred to as “date of knowledge”.
If you are under 18, your limitation period only starts when you come of age.
If you are seeking compensation on behalf of a deceased person, your limitation period ensues from the date of the demise of the person.
