Handling Surgery Malpractice Claims Throughout New York
Having surgery can be an overwhelming experience before, during, and after the procedure. Many surgeons perform procedures that help save the lives of their patients and enhance quality of life.
Unfortunately, due to a wide range of mistakes, a patient can also suffer serious injury, illness, or even death at the hands of a negligent doctor. In fact, 4,000 or more surgical errors happen yearly in the United States.
Surgical errors may occur during the operation or during pre-operative or post-operative care. Some serious mistakes made during surgery will have devastating consequences right away, while others may become apparent only with the passage of time.
Types of Surgery Mistakes
While most surgeries are successful, some cause a patient to suffer infection, paralysis, medication overdose, and other varying medical conditions.
Patients may suffer harm from one, or a combination of, the following:
- Wrong-site surgery
- Wrong surgical procedure
- Violation of informed consent
- Medication errors
- Failure to diagnose
- Contaminated surgical tools and equipment
- Pre-operative and post-operative care failures
- Anesthesia accidents
