Failure to Perform Correct Surgical Procedures
Prior to a surgery, your doctor probably told you about the different risks
and complications that might arise. Your doctor probably did not tell
you that surgical errors could also occur during many procedures. Unfortunately,
thousands of people are permanently scarred, injured, or even die from
medical malpractice because of errors made during and after surgery.
Surgical errors include errors made during pre-operative and postoperative care. A surgical
error may result from something as simple as an incorrect incision, or
as serious as operating on the wrong side of the body, the wrong organ,
or even the wrong person. Surgeons can also make errors by puncturing
internal organs or even leaving medical utensils inside the body.
Unfortunately, thousands of people are victims of surgical error every
year. A surgical error can cause excessive and unnecessary pain and suffering, or even
wrongful death. Sometimes, surgeons are trusted to correct medical conditions that a
patient is suffering from, only to leave the patient with the pain and
scars of an error made by the surgeon.
Surgical errors can occur even in the easiest or most common surgeries.
Being the victim of a surgical error is a terrible thing, and you deserve
to be compensated for it. A
medical malpractice claim can provide you with compensation for pain, suffering, lost wages, and
your medical bills.
