Surgical Error


Often, when a patient experiences a surgical complication, even though the resulting condition may be tragic and unanticipated, the injury is an event that can happen even under the best of care as medicine is an inexact science, and perfection is not the standard by which medical conduct is judged. However, occasionally, a mistake occurs at surgery which is preventable when appropriate medical care is rendered. In such a circumstance, it may be advisable to pursue a legal action. For instance, example of surgical mistakes where compensation may be due the injured patient include nerve injury during many types of surgery, wrong site surgery, surgical instruments/sponges left behind inadvertently, and injuries caused by faulty technique.
