Common Forms of Surgical Malpractice

Patients who undergo surgery do so with the understanding and trust that their attending surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists, and other attending physicians will treat them to the best of their ability and with the utmost care. When this trust is broken, patients can suffer a vast array of injuries and complications, resulting in agonizing pain, infections, lifelong debilitation, and possible death.

Possible forms of surgical negligence include:

  • Leaving sponges, needles, and instruments inside a patient
  • Amputating or operating on the wrong body part
  • Operating while intoxicated or extremely fatigued
  • Unintentionally lacerating internal organs
  • Failing to communicate the risks of surgery or obtain consent
  • Operating with insufficient training
  • Performing unnecessary surgeries
  • Operating with unsterilized or contaminated tools

If you have been injured due to a preventable surgical error, you may have grounds to pursue compensation for your resulting losses, including medical expenses, costs of further surgeries, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. Since awardable damages will vary greatly depending on the specifics of your situation, it is important you consult with our firm as soon as possible to determine your eligible range of compensation.
