Skilled Lawyers Handling Surgery Error Cases
Surgical errors impact people’s lives every day. However, most patients and families have difficulty determining whether an unsuccessful operation was the result of surgical error or simply due to the inherent risk posed by surgery.
If you or a family member suffered a severe injury during the course of surgery or due to a doctor’s error, the lawyers at Harvey & Foote Law Firm, can help determine your options to pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Common Examples Of Surgical Errors Or Malpractice
A study by the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) reported that one out of every 10 patient deaths within 90 days of surgery was the result of a preventable error.
Examples of surgical malpractice include:
- Performing the wrong procedure or operating on the wrong body part
- Failing to take proper precautions to protect nearby organs, nerves, blood vessels and tissues from unintended damage
- Negligence that causes an operating room fire that injures the patient
- Leaving an instrument, medical supply or device in the patient
- Anesthesiology errors that can result in severe pain and permanent injuries
