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. Surgical error and complications lawsuits can be some of the most difficult, as most hospitals and surgical facilities do not proactively admit their mistakes.

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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
