The Team You Need for the Results You Deserve Kansas City's Leading Medical Malpractice & Serious Personal Injury Firm

Paralysis & Surgical Negligence Attorneys in Kansas City

Representing the Injured Victims of Surgical Errors

When you undergo surgery, whether to remove a cancerous tumor or to replace a vital organ, you expect your surgeon to perform the surgery with the utmost precision and care. Not only do you put your complete trust in the surgeon, but you also rely on the nurses and other professionals on the surgical team to make sure the procedure goes smoothly.

Unfortunately, the surgery may unexpectedly go wrong. A botched surgery can lead to serious injuries, infections, and even paralysis. If you or a family member is experiencing severe pain due to a surgical error, you may be able to bring a medical malpractice claim.

The Kansas City surgical error attorneys at Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., are dedicated to obtaining maximum compensation for victims suffering from paralysis and surgical negligence. Our lawyers assist clients with their medical malpractice claims in Kansas and Missouri.

Types of Surgical Errors

A patient may suffer from severe pain, disfigurement, infection, paralysis, a subsequent illness, or even death as a direct result of surgical negligence.

We protect the rights of individuals who have been victims of several types of surgical errors, including:

  • Failing to adequately explain the risks of surgery to the patient
  • Performing surgery on the wrong body part
  • Performing the wrong type of surgery on the patient
  • Performing the surgery with unsterile equipment
  • Leaving a foreign object, such as a medical instrument, in the patient’s body
  • Improperly administering and monitoring anesthesia
  • Botching cosmetic, reconstructive, or plastic surgery resulting in disfigurement
  • Failure to treat infections or complications that arise during or after surgery
