Surgical errors are extremely common accounting for many serious injuries and even deaths. Surgical errors can cause both severe emotional and physical devastation. In many instances, a patient may not even be aware that a surgical error took place, as it is often covered up and never acknowledged. If you or a family member has been the victim of surgical malpractice then please contact our firm today.
Surgical errors can cause significant, irreparable physical and emotional harm and even death. Of course, surgery is often a high-risk undertaking, and not all bad surgical outcomes mean that there was a surgical error. But when the harm is caused by negligence, the healthcare provider may be liable for medical malpractice.
Surgical mistakes commonly associated with negligence include: wrong site surgery, wrong patient surgery, organ perforation or puncture, use of unsanitary surgical instruments and surgical instruments left inside the body.
