We trust surgeons with our lives, and why shouldn’t we? After all, they are highly trained and highly paid medical authorities. We expect them to preform each and every surgery with the utmost care and precision. But when surgeries go wrong, the results can last a lifetime. Patients are often expected to waive liability when undertaking surgery. But when the surgeon or supporting staff does more harm than good, that contract is broken.
Common Types of Surgical Mistakes
All surgery involves some degree of risk. Even with me most skilled doctors, complications can arise. However, these are some of the most common (and inexcusable) surgical errors we have seen.
- Incorrect surgical procedure performed
- Surgical or other items left in the body
- Organs, tissue or nerve damage
- Surgery performed on wrong site or wrong patient
- Over- or under-anesthetizing
- Patient’s recovery not closely monitored
- Infection due to contaminated operating room or equipment
If you suspect that one of the above instances (or another mistake) has contributed to compilations in your surgery, it’s smart to sit down with an accomplished, sympathetic Illinois medical malpractice attorney at Malman Law. We can hold the doctor, nurse, anesthesiologist or other medical professional responsible for your injury and collect the maximum amount of compensation for you.
