“Am I a victim of a surgical error?”
If you or a family member was injured by a surgical error, you may require an additional surgery to correct the problem. Or, you may be facing a life with a serious injury or permanent disability. Your medical expenses are going to be more than you can handle on your own.
Errors and negligence may occur before, during or after a surgery. In fact, negligent postoperative care such as failure to monitor patients after surgery is one of the most common causes of surgical patient injury and wrongful death. Additional surgical errors may include:
- Unnecessary surgery
- Wrong patient surgery
- Wrong site surgery
- Retained surgical instruments
- Failure to follow hospital protocols
- Anesthesia errors
In the most severe cases, a surgical error may result in the wrongful death of the patient. An error or negligence by surgeons, anesthesiologists, doctors, nurses and other medical staff can also cause catastrophic injuries such as:
- Spinal cord injury
- Disfigurement or scarring
- Amputation/loss of limb
- Brain damage
- Nerve damage
- Organ damage
