Undergoing surgery is a physically and emotionally draining time for patients and their loved ones.

Decades Of Experience Addressing Surgical Malpractice
We expect surgeons and other surgery room staff to be highly trained and know what they are doing. When medical professionals make reckless decisions that ignore the standard of care, mistakes almost always follow.
Here are just a few examples of how a surgical team’s failures can severely affect the lives of patients:
- Performing a surgical procedure on the wrong patient
- Performing surgery on the wrong body part or in the wrong location
- Leaving surgical instruments inside a patient’s body
- Accidentally cutting major arteries or internal organs
- Administering the inappropriate dosage of anesthesia to a patient
- Prescribing the wrong medication or dosage to a patient
- Making decisions that disregard hospital policy or patient safety
- Failing to keep up on training or licensure
- Performing unnecessary surgical procedures, such as cesarean sections
These types of mistakes can be costly if a patient survives because they can result in: serious follow-on infections, loss of limbs or organs unnecessarily, serious complications (including heart attack, stroke and brain damage), and the need for additional surgeries to correct mistakes. Sadly, not all patients are lucky in these types of cases. Serious surgical mistakes can lead to a patient’s death, resulting in unexpected burial and funeral costs for surviving loved ones.
