Medical Malpractice Surgical Errors
Surgery is inherently risky. Prior to your procedure, your surgeon will inform you of the possible risks and complications associated with the operation; however, a surgical error caused by medical malpractice is an unacceptable risk. Surgical errors can aggravate your condition and create new injuries. You may require invasive treatment to address these injuries, or the injury may have caused physical disability.
Common surgical errors include:
- Wrong site surgery
- Wrong surgery performed
- Puncture of internal organs
- Unsanitary surgical instruments
- Anesthesia errors
Being informed of certain risks, and accepting those risks, is an important part of consenting to your surgery, but medical negligence is not one of these risks. When a surgeon, nurse, or other hospital worker involved in your surgery deviates from accepted standards of care and injures you as a result, you should contact our attorney to learn more about your options. If it can be proven that medical negligence was the direct cause of your injury, you may be able to recover compensation.
