What are the Forms of Surgeon Negligence?
When a patient undergoes surgery, they are trusting that their physician
will treat them with the highest levels of care and operate to the best
of their ability. When this trust is betrayed, patients can endure a wide
range of devastating injuries and side effects, including excruciating
pain, infections, lasting disability, and possible death.
Surgeon negligence can be manifested in any of the following actions:
- Inadvertently leaving instruments, sponges, or needles inside a person’s body
- Operating under extreme physical or mental fatigue
- Operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Performing surgery on the wrong site
- Unintentionally lacerating internal organs
- Administering too much or too little anesthesia
- Performing unnecessary amputations
What Compensation Can I Recover?
If you have been injured as a result of a surgical error, you may be able
to file a medical malpractice lawsuit in pursuit of compensation for your
suffering. Since the exact amount of eligible damages varies depending
on the severity of injuries suffered, it is imperative that you consult
with an attorney from our firm to get a more accurate representation and
determine your legal options.
If successful, you may be able to recover compensation for the following:
- Medical expenses
- Physical therapy costs
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Pain and suffering
If a loved one should unfortunately pass away from injuries sustained during
surgery, additional compensation can be pursued by filing a
wrongful death claim on their behalf. A successful wrongful death claim can bring compensation
for funeral costs, loss of companionship, lost future income, and emotional distress.
