What Is A Surgical Error?
There are risks to any surgery, and you can suffer a bad medical outcome even if your doctor and anesthesiologist did everything right. However, if you suffered an injury because of doctor negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
Examples of surgery errors that should never happen include:
- Leaving clamps, sponges or other items in a patient’s body
- Operating on the wrong side of a patient
- Operating on the wrong patient
- Removing a healthy organ
- Puncturing an adjacent organ during an operation
- Anesthesia errors
- Failure to monitor a patient after surgery
- Allowing a patient to fall off an operating table
Our attorneys will work with medical experts to determine if your surgical injury was due to negligence on the part of your surgeon. If so, we will fight for your right to compensation for your medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering.
