As a New York and New Jersey weight loss attorney who have concentrated on helping people injured by weight loss surgery malpractice for over 20 years, Paul Simonson is well aware of the reasons why people turn to bariatric surgical procedures to help them lose weight. The combination of dieting and engaging in rigorous exercise, often prescribed by physicians and recommended by well-meaning health and wellness advocates, just doesn’t work.
Research shows that the human body actively works to regain lost weight by decreasing your metabolic rate and increasing your hunger, making it extremely difficult to maintain a lower weight once you’ve been significantly overweight. Bariatric surgery offers you an effective alternative, a solution that seems like a miracle cure after your years of struggle. That’s why medical problems related to errors made during your weight loss surgery are so devastating and deserving of maximum compensation.
Bariatric surgery is complex, and problems can occur during the procedure and during follow-up care. These problems can range from infections to blood clots in the lungs, nerve damage, neurological damage and life-threatening complications, such as peritonitis and sepsis. Knowledgeable, experienced bariatric surgery attorneys understand the problems that can occur during and after surgery, as well as the errors and neglect that could have caused them.
