Surgical Error

Protecting You When Doctors Fail

Surgery in the United States is supposed to be safe, and it is your doctor’s responsibility to minimize the potential risks that come with any surgery. The medical malpractice attorneys at Giroux Pappas Trial Attorneys, Southfield know that surgical errors are common—but that doesn’t make them an acceptable hazard.

Surgical errors generally fall into one of two categories:

  1. Complications that are a risk for most surgeries
  2. Complications that are a risk for this specific type of surgery

Hemorrhaging or bad reactions to anesthetic are a risk for any type of surgery, while cardiac arrest and arrythmia are risks specific to heart surgery.

Did your surgeon make any of the following mistakes?

  • Improper technique resulting in later injury
  • Miscommunication prior to surgery
  • Leaving surgical instruments in your body
  • Incorrect or illegible information on a patient’s chart
  • Operating on the wrong patient altogether
  • Operating on the wrong area
  • Performing the wrong operation

When you agree to surgery, you’re trusting your surgeon to give you the best care possible. If your surgeon is guilty of any of the above, they can be held liable for damages due to medical negligence.
