Miami Plastic Surgeon Hit with Medical Malpractice Suit
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A plastic surgeon in Miami, Florida has been charged with
medical malpractice after two women were allegedly injured after Brazilian Butt Lift surgery.
The two women had the procedure performed, and both needed medical attention
after their organs were punctured during the surgery. One victim spent
four months in the hospital for the procedure that was an “in-and-out”
surgery. Medical personnel at a local hospital found that she had a hole
in her colon from the sharp instrument that the plastic surgeon used.
The other victim experienced extreme pain that wouldn’t go away
and underwent exploratory surgery. They found she had several punctures
to her liver as well as damage to her chest and abdominal wall. The judge
found him guilty of 6 of the nine counts he was charged with, and he will
face the Florida Board of Medicine before they accept or make changes
to the order.
A medical professional is held to a certain standard, and their care is
too, so when they deviate from the standard care and injure a patient
that is unacceptable. If you are injured or harmed by a medical professional,
you may have grounds to pursue a medical malpractice suit. These injuries
can be severe and may mean that you spend months in the hospital, require
extensive therapy, need expensive medicine or even need to remodel your
home due to life-altering injuries. This could also mean that you are
off of work and have lost wages not to mention any family members that
take time off to care for you. This means you could owe thousands of dollars
in medical bills and other related costs. It is important to contact a
medical malpractice attorney to discuss your legal options. An experienced
attorney will sit down with you to determine if you have grounds to pursue
compensation due to the doctor’s negligence.
