Surgery Mistakes – Medical Negligence Lawyers – Wyoming

Surgery Mistake – Medical Claims Lawyers - Wyoming Burg SimpsonAll surgical procedures carry an element of risk and sometimes complications are unavoidable. However, incidents of surgical error are all too common, with surgical mistakes causing serious injuries to numerous patients each year. If you have suffered a medical injury because of a mistake during surgery, you need to speak with a medical malpractice attorney before it is too late.

In at least one of every 100,000 surgeries, doctors make a “wrong site” error, according to research from the American Medical Association. 1 out of every 10,000 operations, surgeons leave something behind in the patient’s body, data shows. In some cases, these errors can lead to wrongful death. Surgeons and doctors are ethically and legally required to practice at acceptable professional standards. Anything less can result in a viable claim of negligence and medical malpractice.

Injuries to patients caused by the negligent actions of a surgeon can range from minor to life-threatening and can occur in the surgical arena or during either the pre-operation or post-operation phases. If you or a family member have been seriously injured because of a surgical mistake, get legal help from an experienced negligence attorney.

Despite major advances in modern medicine and constant improvements to the surgical process, some surgical teams still fail to practice the minimum acceptable level of medical standards. The most common types of surgical errors include:

  • Anesthesia errors, which can be an incorrect dosage or a failure to properly monitor the patient’s vital signs. This can often lead to nerve or spinal cord damage.
  • Leaving foreign objects – sponges or surgical instruments – inside the patient’s body.
  • Performing the wrong procedure.
  • Operating on the wrong patient.
  • Operating on the wrong part of the body.
  • Inadvertently puncturing or lacerating organs, which can results in permanent damage.
  • Medication errors, such as an incorrect dosage or the wrong medication entirely.
  • Failure to detect and/or treat a post-operative conditions, such as an infection, a bowel perforation or a pulmonary embolism.

If you suspect you or a family member may have been injured as a result of surgical malpractice, then it is vitally important that you get in touch with an experienced surgical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.
