About Surgical Injuries
Every surgery has risks, and usually surgeons are required to discuss the risks of your particular medical procedure with you before you go into surgery. While usually surgeries can be beneficial and life saving for patients, very often there can be complications. Surgical injuries, also known as surgical errors or surgical mistakes are a widely underreported occurrence in the medical community. If a patient suffers injuries during of after surgery as a result of a surgeon's recklessness, negligence, or failure to provide a standard level of care throughout the procedure, that patient may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries. Some common surgical injuries that result from
medical negligence or
medical malpractice include:
- Wrong Site Surgery (Operating on the wrong area of the body)
- Incorrect Operation (Removing the wrong part of the body, such as organs and tissue, or amputating a limb
- Surgery unrelated to the patient's diagnosis
- Wrong Patient Surgery
- Surgical instrument left in the body (Such as retractors, surgical towels, and sponges)
- Damage from a planned surgery (When damage is not a typical risk that was explained to the patient before surgery)
