Surgical Errors

When Surgery Makes Things Worse

When a surgical procedure is performed on a patient there are many different steps that must be followed before, during and after the procedure. If a patient is not properly cared for, it can result in serious injuries that can even require additional surgical procedures to correct.

We have been handling medical malpractice claims throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens for more than 30 years and receive many referrals from other past clients and colleagues.

Types Of Surgical Errors

Surgical errors can be caused by surgeons, anesthesiologists and other medical professionals involved in the process who act in a negligent manner. Anesthesia, when administered to a patient, must be continuously monitored. Failure to monitor the patient's vital stats can result in injuries. Other types of surgical errors that may be considered medical malpractice include:

  • Instruments and items left inside the body after a procedure
  • Procedures conducted on the opposite arm or leg
  • Failure to monitor a patient post-surgery
