Improperly performed surgery, or surgical error, can result in serious, permanent injury and even wrongful death. Examples of improperly performed surgery are wide and varied. The errors might occur in a major or minor operation, but the result is the same: serious and often ongoing medical injury, long-term care, and higher medical bills.
Improperly performed surgery might include things such as:
- Punctured body tissues or organs,
- Medical devices or debris left in the body,
- Anesthesia errors,
- Surgical injuries to the nerves, tissues and blood vessels.
- Unnecessary surgery
- Wrong level or wrong side surgery
If you have been the victim of medical negligence at the hands of a surgeon you trusted, you may be entitled to compensation. Medical bills, loss of income, disability, and pain and suffering are examples of damages you may be able to pursue in your medical negligence claim.
Medical negligence claims are complex. You must prove that your injuries were due to a departure from the standard of care by a surgeon, nurse or anesthesiologist. It is best to consult a lawyer who is experienced and has a track record of success in medical malpractice cases if you believe you are the victim of an improperly performed surgery.
