Malpractice Claims for Surgical Errors
Surgeons are among the most highly trained individuals in the medical profession, and they are held to exceedingly high standards of practice due to the fact that even minor mistakes during surgery can lead to disastrous and tragic circumstances for patients and their families. Common types of surgical malpractice include failure to diagnose a condition and to order the appropriate procedure, ordering the wrong surgery, anesthesia errors, performing the incorrect procedure, operating on the wrong body part, using infected instruments, and mistakes during operation which cause laceration or puncture of internal organs. Other cases may be based on instruments being left in the patient's body, post-operative infections or insufficient post-operative care.
