How Do Surgical Errors Usually Happen?
The medical field has had many advances in medicine over the recent years, but it is still possible that surgeries can go wrong.
Surgical errors can happen for a variety of reasons, and the consequences to the victim can range from minor pain, to permanent injury, to something as serious as death. It has been estimated that 195,000 people sadly die each year because of surgical errors made that should have been prevented.
So many things can go wrong in the operating room including:
- Wrong dosage of anesthesia
- Damage caused to tissue
…. And in some extreme cases, the person may get operated in the entirely wrong spot of their body!
It is important to understand that even though you may sign a consent form, you are not signing away your right to quality and diligent care.

How Our Surgical Error Lawyers Can Help You
Establishing medical malpractice is often a very difficult task as there can be many obstacles that prevent victims from obtaining the truth about their surgery.
Fortunately, the lawyers at our firm have many years of experience handling these types of cases and can help push past those barriers.
For example: simply obtaining a copy of your surgical records can be very helpful in proving in court that the injury could have been avoided and if all safety protocols were followed or not. We can help to review your medical records and prepare a solid case to show the judge, and in doing so the person who injured you will be held accountable.
We will help you handle situations concerning things like medical bills, compensation for lost wages or income, and they will even help you decide if you should contact the doctor who caused the injury. Many of our clients often find it comforting to know that our law firm is committed to help innocent victims and will not represent the at fault party so you will never have to worry about a conflict of interest.
We truly do have your best interest at heart.
