At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, we fight, you win.

How Organ Perforation and Puncture Injuries Occur

Surgeons have to take special care to avoid lacerating or perforating body organs, systems or functions while performing an operation. Serious surgical errors occur when surgeons do not conform to the appropriate standard of care. Many injuries occur when inexperienced or inattentive doctors take on complex surgery.

Surgical errors can lead to complications with internal organs in many ways:

The Consequences of Lacerated Arteries and Punctured Organs

When medical negligence leads to a perforated bowel, bladder, spleen, kidney or liver, patients can experience infection, sepsis and even death. Cuts into the intestines or stomach can also cause serious, permanent health complications for a patient. Injury to nerves, veins or arteries that are a major source of blood flow or an essential function of the central nervous system can be devastating if they are not recognized and treated in a timely manner.
