Types of Surgical Mistakes
One of the most common areas of medical malpractice includes errors made during surgical procedures. Some common surgical mistakes include:
- Accidental damage to nearby muscles, nerves, tissues, or other organs
- Failing to remove all surgical instruments from a patient
- Infections that were preventable
- Anesthetic errors or failure to identify allergies to anesthesia
- Operating on the wrong body part or even performing the wrong surgery on the wrong patient
Mistakes like these can lead to permanent or even fatal injuries. Victims and their families have a right to hold negligent medical professionals responsible for the injuries their negligence caused.
Damages for Surgical Errors
Suffering injuries at the hands of a medical professional you believed you could trust with your health or that of your loved one can cause feelings of confusion and betrayal. Victims of medical malpractice as well as the loved ones of victims may be entitled to compensation. Damages sought for surgical errors may include compensation for:
- Outstanding medical bills as well as reimbursement for past medical bills and anticipated costs for future medical needs
- Pain and suffering caused by the injury
- Lost wages as a result of time off work due to an extended hospital stay or recovery
- The cost of additional procedures to correct the error
- Diminished earning capacity for permanent injuries that affect the victim’s ability to perform on the job
In the event that a surgical error has caused permanent damage, Mr. Kenison can also seek compensation for any alterations that may need to be made to your home or vehicle to accommodate medical equipment, such as a wheelchair.
