When Robotic Surgery Complications Strike, Turn to USClaims

“Alicia” (not a real person) was a science fiction fan. She particularly enjoyed stories about robots or computers that use artificial intelligence to strike back against their human creators. As much as she liked to watch those films and television programs, though, she never imagined she would become the victim of a robot, herself.

She was only 33 when her gynecologist recommended she have a hysterectomy. She was hesitant, at first, because she understood hysterectomies to be major, painful procedures that came with significant recovery time. But this was the 21st century, her doctor told her. The modern procedure was assisted by robotic technology that helped make it less invasive than what her mother had endured a quarter-century earlier. Alicia decided to move forward with the robotic surgery.

The surgery seemed successful and without incident. A week after discharge, though, she spiked a high fever and became very ill. In the emergency room, it was discovered that she had a massive internal infection. Secondary health problems resulting from the surgery cost her months of lost work, and she still hasn’t returned to full health.

Then news emerged that the robotic model that the surgeon used during her surgery was plagued by a design flaw that caused electrical burns to the inside of patients’ bodies. When Alicia learned that, she followed a personal injury attorney’s advice and filed a lawsuit. The company denied responsibility, of course, claiming that Alicia had caused her own infection by disregarding her surgeon’s post-op discharge instructions.

Her attorney was confident that they eventually would receive a settlement from the surgical robotics company, but Alicia couldn’t afford to wait. She had used up her disability benefits and was still missing work. The medical bills and other household expenses were piling up rapidly.

Her attorney told her to call USClaims. If you’re having trouble meeting your expenses while waiting for a legal settlement or a judgment related to a surgical injury, USClaims can help provide the financial support you need.
