Nashville Improper Suturing Attorneys
Suturing is a medical procedure that is meant to close open wounds and involves stitching that will hold the bodily tissues together. It is most often used post-surgery or after a laceration injury. While suturing is a fairly basic procedure, sometimes doctors use improper suturing methods or make an error in suturing which results in a patient’s pain, discomfort, blood loss, or other serious repercussions.
You should be able to count on your doctor or surgeon to perform necessary suturing procedures without endangering your health. When this trust is violated, our Nashville medical malpractice attorneys of Pohl & Berk, LLP, stand ready to assist you in holding an irresponsible doctor or surgeon responsible for his or her negligence.

Results of Improper Suturing
If a doctor or surgeon performs a suturing procedure improperly, there are many different consequences that could affect an innocent patient. Some of these dangerous consequences involve:
- Wound reopening
- Blood loss
Any of these consequences could be emotionally and physically traumatic for someone who expected to be healed after receiving sutures. As such, the medical professional responsible for causing this should be held financially accountable.
If you or someone that you care about has undergone a suture procedure which was performed improperly, you could be due financial compensation for a doctor’s negligence.
