In the fragile human body, even slight surgical errors can evolve into significant health concerns. From simple and routine to complex and lengthy, all surgeries carry potential risks to patient safety. To minimize the frequency and impact of those risks, many specially trained people work together, including surgeons, anaesthesiologists, operating room nurses, and recovery room staff. These people are also trained to ensure that where a complication arises, it is identified and treated as quickly as possible.

Substandard healthcare includes mistakes like surgical errors, and may result in claims of surgeon malpractice. Even though healthcare staff are specially trained to monitor a patient’s progress and identify and treat complications as they arise, the reality is that errors and oversights can and do occur.

Healthcare professionals have the same obligations and responsibilities to every patient, so every patient deserves their highest degree of attention, whether a patient is undergoing compulsory or elective surgery. Medical malpractice also covers cases involving plastic surgery malpractice and cosmetic surgery malpractice.

In the stages of considering surgery or planning for obligatory surgery, it is expected that your doctor describe the procedure in detail, and outline any possible complications. Some occurrences of surgeon malpractice arise when the patient is not properly advised of the potential dangers. Patients whose condition worsens after surgery may have grounds for a surgical malpractice claim, especially if the patient was not advised of this possible adverse impact.

In the days, weeks, and sometimes even months following a surgery, a patient should expect that healthcare staff will closely monitor their health condition. When there are sudden or unexpected changes in the patient’s condition, such changes need to be recognized promptly and appropriately monitored. The reality is that the proper attention is not always given, and oversights are made. Countless people have suffered following surgical injury and surgical errors. These people are owed a remedy to their suffering and a recompense for their loss.

How do people know if they have grounds to bring surgical error claims? To answer this question, you need to have a thorough understanding of the law applying to surgical error claims. You also need to have a working knowledge of the standard of care expected and required of healthcare professionals. There will also need to be proof of substandard care. Overall, surgical error claims are difficult to prove and litigate, which may leave many individuals feeling as though they have no means to secure the compensation they deserve. The surgical malpractice lawyers at Neinstein LLP are specialists in surgery negligence claims. One of the surgical malpractice lawyers at Neinstein LLP will advocate for you to secure a fair compensation in your case.

Surgical injury and surgical errors range widely in type and severity. Surgeon malpractice arises from such occurrences as surgeons forgetting to remove materials such as sponges, damage to another organ or membrane during an operation, deficiency in control for infection, and even improper surgical techniques. Each of these causes can lead to its own set of health issues, and only experienced surgery malpractice lawyers can properly counsel you and advocate for you to remedy the suffering and loss you’ve experienced.

A healthcare worker’s mistake can quickly escalate and result in grave repercussions for the patient and their family. Other surgical mistakes may take longer to become evident, but can lead to serious long-term damage or even death. A failure to operate in a timely way or subsequent failure of a surgical anastomosis can quickly lead to life threatening sepsis and other complications. A failure to recognize or respond to changes in the patient’s condition during surgery, such as a drop in blood pressure, can cause impairment of brain function or even death.
