Surgical Errors

Ohio Surgical Malpractice and Hospital Malpractice Attorneys

Surgery is one circumstance in life where trust is essential. When a patient (or the family) agrees to allow a doctor to invade the body to perform necessary or elective medical procedures such as the following:

  • Knee or hip replacement
  • Heart valve repair
  • Removal of a cancerous or benign tumor
  • Removal of the appendix
  • Dental surgery such as removal of wisdom teeth
  • Repair of internal organs after an accident
  • Spinal cord fusion
  • Setting of broken bones
  • Gastric bypass

The patient has every right to expect that only the highest standards will be met by the doctors. In these and many other types of surgical procedures, the patient relies on the surgeon’s skill and technical ability. The patient expects to be on the path to improved health — not to be subjected to injury or even death as a result of a surgeon’s carelessness or negligence. Contact an accomplished surgical malpractice attorney if you were injured or if your loved one died during or soon after surgery.

Injuries that occur as a result of surgeon errors may make the patient eligible for compensation through a medical malpractice surgical errors that often occur are as follows:

  • Operating on the wrong body part (such as the wrong arm, leg, breast, lung or other two-sided body part)
  • Leaving foreign objects inside the body
  • Mistakenly cutting nerves, arteries, the bladder, the bowels or other critical internal organs or anatomical parts
