Surgery gone wrong may leave New Jersey residents feeling wary

While it is true that many surgical procedures can prove difficult to perform and present various risks, some issues could be preventable. When a person is the victim of a surgery gone wrong, he or she may feel that life has changed forever. In many cases, such incidents can lead to additional medical problems or other issues that can have substantial impacts. 

New Jersey residents may be interested in one man's case that recently came to a verdict. Reports stated that the man had been experiencing pain in one of his testicles, and as a result, he was scheduled to have the testicle surgically removed. However, during the procedure, the surgeon removed the wrong testicle. The situation resulted in the man still having the testicle that caused him pain.

Due to having developed a fear of additional surgery, the man must contend with the pain that he experiences on a chronic basis. The surgical mistake led to the man filing a legal claim against the doctor and the hospital at which the procedure took place. A jury recently ruled in the man's favor, indicating that the surgeon exhibited "reckless indifference" while conducting the procedure.

No one wants to be the victim of a surgery gone wrong, but it unfortunately does happen. If New Jersey residents have suffered due to the mistakes of a surgeon or other medical professional, they may wish to understand how to potentially handle their situation. Discussing options and concerns with experienced legal counsel may provide beneficial input for those wishing to seek it.
