Our law firm has a record of results
There are many different types of surgical errors, including:
- Delayed surgery
- Unnecessary surgery
- Anesthesia errors
- Using surgical tool improperly
- Performing surgery on the wrong part of the body
- Performing surgery on the wrong patient
- Infection from surgical instruments that weren’t sterilized properly
- Puncturing an internal organ during surgery
- Leaving a surgical instrument or material inside the body
Surgery is a complex procedure and there are many people involved in it. These include the surgeon, surgical assistants, surgical technicians, anesthesiologists and nurses. Hospitals are required to ensure that standards of care are met by enacting effective policies and procedures. It only takes one act of negligence to result in harm to the patient.
How does medical negligence happen during surgery? A medical professional could be fatigued or distracted or acted recklessly. There may have been an error in medical records or in communication. A professional may not have been trained properly. Our lawyers identify the negligent parties and hold them accountable.
Medical professionals, medical facilities and insurance companies may fight your claim aggressively because they know there is a lot of money at stake. Professionals and hospitals often won’t admit to doing anything wrong. Insurance companies and their lawyers often deny responsibility and may try to pay you as little as possible – or nothing at all.
