Surgical Error Malpractice

While every surgery has an inherent risk to the patient, those normal risks can be added to unnecessarily by surgical errors. Surgery mistakes include any errors made by medical professionals during a surgery, and are often the result of negligence.

Many people that are harmed by surgical errors don’t realize medical malpractice has occurred. If you simply suspect that something went wrong, you should consider speaking with an attorney who can evaluate the details of your case. To schedule an evaluation of your case, please call 1-702-830-7380.

Surgical Errors and Medical Malpractice

Having to undergo surgery can be stressful and frightening. We trust our surgeons with our lives and hop that all goes as planned. If a surgeon makes a mistake, he or she should be held accountable for your injuries and loss. Mistakes can happen because of poor medical training, overworked surgeons and staff, and over exhaustion.

Common Types of Surgical Errors

  • Use of improperly sterilized equipment
  • Surgical equipment or foreign objects being left inside the body
  • Operating on the wrong body part, or even operating on the wrong patient
  • Anesthesia mistakes
  • Puncturing other organs

Mistakes during surgery can have devastating effects. Injuries can be severe and can result in a lifetime of pain and expensive medical bills.

At the law firm of Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen, we recognize the trauma associated with surgical mistakes and will fight aggressively to get you and your family a maximum financial recovery. Compensation may not reverse the damage, but can help ease the stress of the situation and help you get the highest quality of life.

Surgical errors can cause severe infections, nerve damage, internal bleeding or disfigurement. Injured patients might require organ removal or limb amputation following mistakes. Other severe injuries include brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and paralysis.
