Types of Surgical Errors We Handle
A surgical error is one that occurs at any stage of the surgery process. From pre-operative instruction and care to recovery, the patient may be exposed to misinformation, misdiagnosis, and failure to provide proper treatment. Some of the more common issues include, but are not limited to:
- Amputation of the wrong limb(s);
- Birth injuries caused by surgery;
- Surgical instruments left in the body;
- Performing the wrong surgical procedure;
- Improper dosage of anesthesia or other medicines;
- Inadequate post-surgical care; and
- Failure to diagnose and treat post-surgical complications.
In some cases, patients experience irreparable or life-changing injuries that threaten their future quality of life. Unfortunately, others do not survive the surgical error. We are prepared to respond swiftly to the unique circumstances of your medical malpractice or wrongful death claim.
