Experience in Surgical Error Cases
Fighting Against Negligence
There’s a lot at stake when it comes to surgical errors – a surgeon’s career, a hospital’s reputation and a significant amount of money. Surgical errors can have a major financial impact on injury victims and their families. Sometimes, medical bills and other expenses can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Other times, the true cost of a surgical error can be millions, especially if you take into consideration the lost future income of someone who cannot work anymore due to their surgical error.

Common Surgical Errors
Anesthesiologists play a critical role during surgery. These medical professionals make sure patients undergoing surgery are properly sedated and regain consciousness without suffering any adverse health problems.
It’s almost impossible to imagine a surgeon performing on the wrong part of the body. Yet these serious surgical errors happen far more often than many people might realize.
Surgical tools are not something most people think about when they need surgery. Most of the attention is focused on the surgeon’s skills in the operating room. Without the right surgical tools – or if the right tools are used the wrong way – serious surgical errors can occur.
Many surgical procedures are necessary. Without them, many people’s injuries or illnesses would get worse. In certain extreme cases, not performing surgery or delaying an operation by a few days or hours can prove fatal.
