Surgical Errors

There are many types of surgeries - from elective and cosmetic to life-altering and emergency. Whether on the night before your surgery or in the moments before you are put under, it is very likely that you experienced fear and uncertainty. It is also very likely that you felt comforted by the fact that your surgeon and entire health care team are highly trained professionals.

After a surgical error has occurred, patients and their family members are often left wondering how the error was allowed to happen. At Musleh Law Firm, in Ocala, Florida, our medical malpractice attorneys are able to determine the cause of the error. What happened? Who is responsible? What are the most advisable methods for seeking compensation for our injured clients?

WHAT WAS THE CAUSE OF THE SURGICAL ERROR?

While every surgery does carry some risk, your surgeon and other medical professionals should follow the standard of care to ensure that you are not injured due to a preventable error. There are many ways in which surgical errors can occur, with many common errors involving the following:

  • Wrong patient surgery
  • Wrong site or wrong side surgery
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Infections
  • Foreign bodies/surgical tools left inside the patient
  • Internal bleeding
  • Organ damage
  • Damage to nervous system
  • Disfigurement

Surgical errors can result in very serious health problems or death. We have access to a vast network of resources and medical experts who help us determine how the error occurred.

We seek maximum compensation for our injured clients, striving to help them adjust as fully as possible to the damage left by the medical error.
