New York Surgical Error Attorneys

Surgical ErrorsEvery surgery carries some type of risk. In fact, did you know that approximately 98,000 wrongful deaths occur in the United States each year as the result of surgical error?

Some errors may cause complications during the procedure, anesthesia error, or infections that develop after the surgery. However, if a patient was injured and even died as a result and it appears to have been a mistake caused by the negligence of the medical professionals charged with his or her care, those at fault must be held responsible.Common Ways Surgical Errors Occur

  • Anesthesia error.
  • Incorrect incision.
  • Use of improperly sterilized equipment.
  • Operating on the wrong organ, body part, or even the wrong patient.
  • Leaving tools or other medical equipment inside the body cavity after a procedure.
  • Causing damage to other areas of the body during surgery.
  • Negligent amputation – when a surgeon removes the incorrect limb.
  • Injuries Caused by Surgical Error
  • Nerve or organ damage.
  • Infection.
  • Internal bleeding.
  • Disfigurement.
  • Unnecessary scarring.
  • Brain damage trauma to the limbs, bowels, respiratory, nervous, or circulatory systems.
  • Birth injury.
  • Death of the baby and/or mother during childbirth.

Surgical errors are simply one of the most devastating things that can happen to a person and their entire family. The death of a loved one can seriously change people’s lives and tear families apart.

If the person survives the error, the results can affect their quality of life, their relationships, and their physical, emotional and psychological well being for years to come.
