    Medical Malpractice
  • Surgical Error

The most common call into our office is for bad results from surgery.  A surgical procedure is exactly the wrong situation for an avoidable mistake because these errors often have catastrophic consequences.

Surgery is a difficult, sensitive act, fraught with many unavoidable risks.  A bad outcome in a surgery is not necessarily medical malpractice.  However, when surgeons violate establish standards of care, innocent patients are seriously injured and killed.  

Surgeons have a difficult job and are held to a high standard.  However, surgeons are among the highest paid professionals in our society and compensated handsomely for their expertise.  When they failure to follow recognized standards of practice, they should be held accountable.

Common Surgical Errors
A lot can go wrong during surgery, which is why responsible hospitals and surgical teams take extensive precautions. However, even the best precautions will fail when they are not followed, or when inattentive medical providers are negligent.

Common examples of surgical errors include:

  • Anesthesia errors, particularly related to allergies
  • Accidental damage to surrounding muscles, ligaments, tissue and nerves
  • Leaving surgical instruments inside patients
  • Avoidable infection

Consequences of Surgical Errors

The consequences of surgical errors are often severe.  Common injuries from surgical errors include:

  • Brain damage
  • Loss of the use of a limb
  • Lingering infections
  • Death

You have the right to just compensation for your injuries caused by surgical error medical malpractice. This compensation can include medical expenses as a result of the mistake, loss of income and earning capacity and the pain and suffering you endured.
