Surgical Errors and Complications Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Almost every surgery has risks, but those risks should not include preventable errors. Unfortunately, thousands of people are injured every year due to surgical mistakes that are completely preventable. Many “complications” that occur in surgery are caused by errors made by the surgeon or his team. When these errors cause injury or death to the patient, the medical professional or facility may be liable and can be sued in a medical malpractice lawsuit.

There are many factors involved in preparing for and performing surgery. While there are always risks, many of these risks and possible complications can be mitigated by the surgical team following their protocols for the surgery. The common surgical errors that occur and cause harm are often mistakes that should never be made. In fact, they are called “never events,” referring to the fact that they should never happen. Some of these include:

  • Surgery on the wrong patient
  • Surgery on the wrong body part
  • Leaving foreign objects inside patients (sponges or instruments)
  • Performing the wrong procedure

Other errors like poor sanitization that can cause hospital-acquired infections or poor monitoring of the patient’s vital signs during surgery can also cause injury and death. These are not routine risks of surgery. Most surgical errors can be prevented, and the responsible party should be held accountable for their actions.

Complexity of Surgical Error Medical Malpractice Claims

Most medical malpractice lawsuits are complex and require the assistance of medical experts to build a winning case.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
