Falls: Surgical Accidents and Medical Errors

After you have had surgery it can take you a while to fully recover. During this time before you can get back to your normal life, several post-operative things can occur. Some of these include slow healing wounds, infections, and even falls. Falls occur from surgery often times due to body weakness and limited mobility. Sometimes these falls are a result of medical errors made by doctors and hospitals. If you’re injured in a fall that is caused by these medical errors, you may be entitled to compensation.

Insurance companies most often will not compensate you for falls that occur as a result of medical errors or malpractice on the part of doctors or hospitals. It can be difficult to prove that these errors caused your fall, which in turn were responsible for your injuries. Therefore, they will not compensate you for them. Instead, you will be burdened by the physical pain from the injuries you sustained during your fall, as well as the financial expenses that resulted.

If it is very clear and evident that falls that occurred were a result of medical malpractice, insurance companies will most likely offer you a settlement. However, this settlement is usually very low compared to what you are entitled to and should be receiving. They will pressure you to accept this settlement, knowing that if you seek out legal counsel to advise you on the settlement they will have to end up paying you what you deserve.

Obtaining legal counsel in a medical malpractice case, such as injuries sustained in falls after surgery, is very important, especially before you accept any money or settlement from your insurance company.
