Inappropriate or Negligently Performed Surgery

Surgical errors comprise many of the most common medical malpractice cases. In fact, surgical mistakes constitute one of the leading causes of preventable death in the United States. Surgical mistakes may not always be as obvious as "wrong site" surgery, such as performing bypass on the wrong artery or amputating the wrong limb.

Surgical errors include some of the following examples that we have seen in our legal practice:

  • Performing the wrong procedure at the correct surgical site
  • Anesthesia mistakes
  • Leaving a foreign object inside a body
  • Failure to complete the intended procedure

Surgical mistakes can also be the result of a physician's failure to exercise the appropriate standard of care at any point in the surgical process. Mistakes by surgeons, anesthesiologists, nursing staff, and even lack of hospital procedure may constitute negligence.
