Jacksonville Woman Files Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Against Naval Hospital

By Farah & Farah on May 17, 2011 - Comments off

A 72-year-old Jacksonville woman has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against the Naval Air Station Jacksonville Hospital for what she says was a preventable medical error that left her partially disabled, reports First Coast News. The woman went in to have a mass removed around her kidney last May and was told she’d be in the hospital for a few days. Instead she was there for four months after her attorney says her aorta was accidentally sliced during surgery and someone used surgical staples to put the aorta back together. Knowing something was wrong, the woman tried to go back to the hospital but it was the Memorial Day weekend and most workers were off. As a result, the CT scan that was used to diagnose her problem was delayed for a few days. Eventually she had emergency surgery at another facility but not before blood circulation to her legs was disrupted, causing a spinal cord stroke and permanent damage, leaving her unable to walk.

If you or a family member have suffered an injury or severe adverse effects following a medical procedure or stay at a hospital or other medical facility, the healthcare provider may have committed medical malpractice. The Jacksonville medical malpractice lawyers at the Farah & Farah law firm remind you that even though there is a degree of risk involved with almost every medical procedure and prescription pharmaceutical, the risk is something the patient should have been informed of in order to make a decision about whether or not they wanted to take that risk. If you were not informed of these possibilities and no one seems to be taking your adverse outcome seriously, our medical malpractice attorneys can help you determine if you have a viable medical malpractice lawsuit to file against the hospital and/or healthcare provider for your suffering.
