Types Of Surgical Errors
The thought of a surgeon making an error while operating is a scary one. This does, unfortunately, happen to quite a few patients every year. Surgeons should be operating with the utmost caution to avoid these situations, but they still may make errors such as:
- Tools or objects left in the body
- Injury to organs
- Incomplete procedural errors
- Errors administering anesthesia
Any of these medical mistakes or others could lead to serious injury or even death if it is not corrected quickly. Our team at Taylor & Tucker, LLC, stands by the sides of people who are injured because of a doctor’s negligence.
We make a positive recovery in over 98% of the cases we pursue.
Hold Hospitals Responsible For Their Errors
While individual surgeons are many times to blame for what happened to you, the hospital is the party that will be involved in your medical malpractice claim. We encourage you to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after a surgical error to make sure you are completing the filing process correctly, or to get more information about filing a claim.
The reason we do what we do is to help people heal after unexpected and tragic injuries. It is not fair for you to suffer the consequences of someone else’s negligent actions. When it comes to surgical errors, we are fully prepared to face hospitals in court if needed. We want you to get the true, correct treatment that you need.
