Skilled Surgical Malpractice Lawyers: Seeking Justice for Victims

When you go to the doctor to have surgery, you are placing great trust in the doctor and the hospital. You trust that the doctor will correctly diagnose you and then follow through with the proper course of treatment by a team of medical professionals that includes surgeons and anesthesiologists. Unfortunately, there are a quarter of a million people are killed by surgery malpractice through surgical mistakes or surgical errors each year, according to a study by CNN Health.

A surgical procedure for you or a loved one can be intimidating, but that’s why qualified and responsible healthcare providers and proper oversight by a hospital or medical center are critical.

Your surgical and anesthesia error claim

There are a variety of types of surgical and anesthesia errors that can occur, and the most common types include:

  • Doctors treating the wrong patient
  • Doctors performing a wrong site surgery on the wrong body part
  • Healthcare professionals leaving surgical instruments or materials like sponges inside a patient after surgery
  • Patients waking up during surgery because of anesthesia errors
  • Doctors failing to provide informed consent regarding the risks of surgery

Another type of shocking medical malpractice case is when doctors - who are trusted by their patients - perform experimental or unnecessary surgeries without their patient’s full consent or understanding. While this seems unthinkable, it does happen.

Surgical errors can result in permanent or life-changing conditions for injured patients including nerve damage, change or damage to a part of the body, brain damage or even wrongful death.
