Surgical Mistakes, Errors and Medical Malpractice

We have come a long way since barbers performed Surgery. Today’s Surgeons are highly trained specialists using sophisticated technology — often with amazing success. However, even the best Surgeon is not beyond human error. While we expect a Surgeon to help us, and we understand that there are no guarantees — we do not expect a Surgeon to make avoidable errors.

Despite the progress of modern surgery, preventable Surgical Errors continue to occur with regularity. The U.S. Government’s Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) estimates that over 32,000 deaths per year occur from Surgical Mistakes, ¬†along with an untold number of injuries. The consequences of Surgical Errors range from mild, quickly resolving problems to severe, lifelong disability or death. When a preventable severe injury or death occurs, it becomes a tragedy for both the patient and their family. Errors during Surgery may be committed by the Surgeon, Anesthesiologist, and/or Operating Room Staff. Common examples include:

  • Failure to determine whether the Patient is a proper candidate for Surgery;
  • Failure to properly monitor the Patient during Surgery;
  • Failure to perform the Surgery within the accepted Standards of Care;
  • Leading instruments or other Surgical articles in the Patient;
  • Failure to properly stem bleeding before closing the Surgical wound;
  • Failure to appropriately detect and fix repairable complications of Surgery Post-Operatively — including bleeding, leaks and infections; and
  • Failure to prescribe proper Post-Operative care and follow-up.

If you or a loved one have been victimized by a Surgical Error, and sustained significant injuries thereby, you need a Law Firm with the experience and resources to bring your claim. It is very important to make a Surgical Malpractice claim in a timely fashion — since the Statutes of Limitations for Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death are very short. Such claims can be lost in as little as one year following improperly performed Surgery, and just two years after a Wrongful Death caused by Surgical catastrophe. If you have questions about the time-frame for bringing a claim, please contact our office.

We have a full-time physician on staff to review your case along with a proven track record of bringing satisfaction to those injured by Surgical Malpractice. We are not afraid to go up against any Surgeon or Hospital. We offer no-charge consultation and will be happy to discuss your potential claim. Don’t let the compensation you and your family may be entitled to lapse by failing to file your claim in a timely fashion — contact us today to discuss your potential Surgical Malpractice case at no cost to you.
