Botched Transplant in Hawaii

Have You Suffered Organ Failure From Botched Transplant?

16 November

It is one of the most complicated and delicate medical procedures. Countless people throughout Hawaii depend on organ transplants for survival. Unfortunately, not all transplant operations are successful. It only takes one crucial mistake or a split-second of poor judgment by a surgeon to cause permanent physical damage or even death. Whether you or a loved one has suffered organ failure, it is crucial seek immediate legal representation from a Hawaii catastrophic injury lawyer.

Organ failure is one of the leading and most devastating types of catastrophic injuries in Hawaii. The most common organ transplants involve the liver, pancreas, lungs, bones, bone marrow, corneas, and blood. Unlike most personal injury cases, organ failure often brings lifelong struggles that can never be reversed. In far too many instances, patients who have suffered from organ failure are in no condition to speak up for themselves. That is why it is vital to have an experienced legal advocate on your side to help provide proper settlement to pay for medical bills and recover money from underpaid insurance claims and lost wages. The most common cases of botched organ transplants involve the following:

  • Poorly performed surgery
  • Malpractice due to a pharmacy error
  • Using the wrong operating procedure
  • Operating on the wrong patient
  • Failure to remove a surgical implement
  • Transplanting an organ that is not a perfect match for the patient
  • Breach of contract between the donor and donees

Due to the high-risk of organ transplants, these procedures often take significant time to take place. First, a perfect match must be made to successfully transfer an organ from the donor to the patient. Once a match has been confirmed, the surgeons and medical staff must prepare for just about any type of medical emergency. For example, many cases of organ failure in Hawaii are the result of side effects. Physicians and medical facilities can also be liable if they fail to warn the patient of possible risks from a specific organ transplant procedure.
