In some cases errors while performing the circumcision leads to unfortunate consequences. If your loved one has been injured from a circumcision procedure, contact Newland & Newland, LLP today. Our experienced attorneys will be happy to meet with you to determine whether your loved one has a claim for relief.

Wrongful Circumcisions

The decision of whether your loved one should be circumcised is a personal decision that is left to the parents of the baby. Consent must be obtained by a hospital before a circumcision takes place. If a circumcision takes place without your consent and was not a medical necessity, you may have a claim for relief. During an initial consultation, the attorneys at Newland & Newland will need to gather information about the facts and circumstances of your case to see whether your child is entitled to compensation for the wrongful actions of the hospital and its staff.

Botched Circumcisions

When any medical procedure occurs, there is a possibility that something could go wrong. Although routine, this same principle applies to circumcisions performed on infants across the United States. Some common errors that occur while performing circumcisions include:

  • Partial amputation of the tip of the baby’s penis;
  • Removal of too much skin off of the baby’s shaft;
  • “Burying” the penis in the pubic fat pad;

Depending on the type of error, surgeries are performed immediately or in the future to correct the errors. Some of the errors will have devastating consequences if not immediately corrected, leading to permanent disfigurement. If your loved one has had a botched circumcision, the facts of the case may indicate that a claim may brought against the hospital, the medical team that performed the circumcision, and the manufacturer that created the tools used to perform the circumcision.
