Types of Surgical Malpractice

When a patient's life is on the line, no mistake is a small one. Any error made during an operation, during surgical prep, or during post-op could have a serious effect on the patient. Some common types of surgical malpractice include:

  • Wrong site surgery
  • Wrong side surgery
  • Incorrect incision
  • Improper use of medical equipment
  • Misuse of anesthesia
  • Leaving surgical instruments in the body

Any of these errors can worsen a patient's condition or lead to wrongful death. If you or a loved one has experienced any health complications after a recent surgery, surgical malpractice may have occurred. You should consult with a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible to discuss your legal options. You may have grounds to initiate a malpractice lawsuit and may be eligible for compensation for your medical bills, lost income, recovery costs, and pain and suffering.
