Medical mistakes classified as “surgical errors” do not only occur during surgery. Surgical errors can also occur during diagnostic tests, preparation for surgery, and as a result of post-surgical complications.
Common surgical errors include:
- Performing unnecessary surgery as a result of a misdiagnosis
- Cutting in the wrong location or on the wrong side of the body
- Leaving surgical instruments inside the patient
- Performing surgery on the wrong patient
- Administering anesthesia improperly
Surgical errors may occur because surgeons are overworked or inexperienced, or because of poor communication between the surgical team and other health professionals. No matter the cause, we are dedicated to holding the responsible parties liable. Once we have determined that you have a viable medical malpractice claim, our lawyers will work hard to secure the results you and your family deserve.
