Surgical Imprecision

It is normal to feel apprehensive about an upcoming surgical procedure. Although most surgeons and their support staff are dedicated and trustworthy professionals, the sobering reality is that a single mistake can result in serious complications for a surgical patient. Depending upon the circumstances, these complications may necessitate extensive medical treatment and could even lead to a patient’s untimely death. Tragically, many patients become the victim of surgical errors each year.

If a surgeon, nurse, or other medical professional involved in your surgical procedure failed to grant you the standard of care that is expected, then it may be appropriate to consider filing a legal action against the negligent parties.

Alarming Surgical Errors

Patients who are preparing to undergo a surgical procedure are often wracked with tremendous anxiety even when they are only considering the potential problems associated with a normal surgery. These risks and side effects are supposed to be clearly described for patients during consultations and are an essential part of establishing informed consent.

Rarely, however, are the following surgical errors mentioned:

  • Instruments left in the body
  • Improper suturing
  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Wrong patient surgery
  • Mishandling of surgical implements
  • Medication errors

If you or a loved one has been harmed by a negligent surgical team, our Phoenix surgical error attorneys will fight for the full compensation you deserve.
