A new study published online on August 27, 2013, in the Journal for Healthcare Quality shows that more fatalities and injuries are linked to da Vinci robotic surgery than were previously thought.
Between 2000 and 2012, 245 adverse events were reported to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, other unfortunate incidents have recently come to light, suggesting that a number of da Vinci robotic surgery errors regularly go unreported or are misreported.
The lawyers at Hampton & King represent individuals injured by computer-assisted robotic surgery platforms and operator errors. We know that one mechanical failure, or a surgeon who is improperly trained in the use of the robotic equipment, can result in catastrophic injuries or wrongful death. We are here to fight for full compensation for those harmed by such negligence.
Attorney Hartley Hampton is board certified in personal injury litigation by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He and attorney Chris King have more than 50 years of combined experience in these complex cases.
You Pay Absolutely Nothing Upfront
Medical malpractice cases can be costly and complicated, often costing more than $100,000 to develop through trial. We work strictly on a contingent fee basis and advance all of the investigation, case development and court costs. Those expenses, plus our fee, are deducted from the ultimate recovery. If we are not successful, we absorb all costs and charge no fee.
