Should I be a surgeon or a lawyer?


Malpractice lawyer in surgery

The branch of medicine that deals with the surgical treatment of diseases and injuries is called surgery. In Germany there are certain specialties within surgery such as general surgery, vascular surgery, cardiac surgery, orthopedics and trauma surgery, and plastic surgery. This branch of medicine is just as far-reaching and complex, and treatment errors in this area can be just as diverse. These range from errors in operational planning to possible errors in operational execution and errors in operational follow-up care. But also coordination errors between individual departments within a hospital or hygiene deficiencies can make a practitioner or a hospital operator liable for damages. If a surgical intervention is objectively not necessary, e.g. because primarily conservative treatment options are available, it is a medically not indicated intervention for the adverse consequences of which the patient must be compensated.

Typical errors in the field of visceral surgery (abdominal surgery / abdominal surgery) are, for example, intestinal lesions. Inadequate treatment or failure to recognize the lesion can result in peritonitis (inflammation of the peritoneum), which can have serious consequences (artificial anus / stoma). In one case that our law firm was concerned with, our client's ring finger of the left hand was not sufficiently surgically treated after trauma, with the result that the finger had to be amputated. With a court settlement, our client was awarded compensation for pain and suffering and damages in the amount of € 30,000 for the loss of her finger.
