Detroit Improper Suturing Lawyer

Sutures may seem to be a comparatively small part of a surgery or operation, but they are crucial to the proper healing of every patient. Stitches are intended to close incisions or other wounds to allow for the tissue to heal properly and to reduce the likelihood of infection by closing the wound and forming a barrier against bacteria and viruses. However, improper suturing can do more harm than good, causing a patient to suffer needless additional pain and suffering.

If your healing process has been unnecessarily hindered or worsened by improper sutures, you may be able to seek financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. Please contact the Detroit improper suturing lawyers at Ravid & Associates, P.C., by calling (866) 644-6587 to learn more about your legal rights and options in this challenging time.

Stitches Promote Healing

Stitches, or sutures, are intended to promote healing by closing an incision and creating a clean, contained environment for your tissue to restore itself. The body has an amazing natural ability to heal itself and stitches are meant to aid this process and not to interfere with it. Unfortunately, the use of the wrong kind of stitch, sutures made of the wrong kind of material, or other mistakes can be intensely problematic. The following may be symptoms of improper suturing:

  • Reopening wounds
  • Infection
  • Unnecessary or painful scarring
  • Tissue damage

Though suturing is viewed by patients as something of an afterthought, it is far too important to be treated that way by a doctor. Improper suturing may provide grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.
