Organ Perforation – Did It Happen To You? McCready Law
Individuals who go into surgery for operations such as hysterectomies, lap band surgery, bowel resection, tumor removal and so on usually go in apprehensive yet hopeful that after the surgery, they will get a chance to live healthy and happy life. Things don’t always turn out this way however, and complications arise out of surgery due to possible negligence by the surgeon. Organ or bowel perforation are dangerous complications that can lead to organ loss or even death if not rectified in a timely manner. All physicians are bound by a duty of care that implores them to do what is reasonable in their specialty to ensure the safety of their patients, failure to which they can be held liable for all health effects via a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Here are some of the most common organs that get nicked or perforated during surgery:
- Bowels such as the colon, rectum, and lower intestines
- Blood vessels
- Urinary tract
The most common surgeries associated with puncture injuries or organ perforation include:
- Abdominal surgery
- Hernia mesh surgery
- Upper endoscopy
- Bowel resection surgery
Some of the symptoms that you may have suffered organ perforation are:
- An unrelenting fever
- Nausea and vomiting
- Hip, groin or abdominal area pain
It is important to understand that organ perforation, especially one that involves the colon or bowel must be treated as a matter of urgency. This is because you can develop something called peritonitis, a severe infection which if breaches the bloodstream, evolves into sepsis which can lead to death if not treated in a timely manner.

We’d like to stress that just because you signed a consent form or gave oral consent prior to your surgery doesn’t give your surgeon the green light to do whatever with your body or act in a negligent manner.
A consent form does not absolve the physician of liability, and we can still recover compensation or you in the form of an organ perforation lawsuit. Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys will look into your medical files together with medical experts to identify the negligence and present a compelling case on your behalf to show that were it not for your surgeon’s negligence, you never would have suffered organ perforation and the resultant complications. If you’d like to speak with a friendly organ perforation injury attorney to learn more about your legal options for compensation, please give us a call at (773) 825-3651 NOW. The call, as usual, is 100% FREE. Thanks, and we look forward to hearing from you.
