Surgical errors that may constitute medical malpractice

If you are like most people, you feel safe in the care of doctors and surgeons. However, just like any other professional, health care providers can and do make mistakes. When surgical mistakes occur, they can result in dire and costly health issues. Our New York surgical mistakes attorneys at Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, understand medical malpractice law and fight to uphold patients' rights when a negligent provider has caused them harm.

Surgical errors are not always the result of negligence, and therefore, not all injuries sustained at the hands of a surgeon are compensable. However, there are some instances in which evidence of surgeon liability is clear. Such instances include but are not limited to the following:

  •       Failure to use due care during the surgical procedure
  •       Failure to discuss a patient's case with a qualified expert or to send an at-risk patient to a qualified expert
  •       Surgery errors that occur during birth, during plastic surgery or during the treatment and investigation of colon cancer
  •       Failure to use due care during the surgical procedure
  •       Negligence that causes injury to the nerves, blood supply or organs
  •       Insufficient medical care that wrongly fails to identify the need for surgery.

Additional instances in which surgeon negligence may be at fault for the injuries include delays in the performance of surgery, failure to observe a pathology, failure to protect a patient's airways or monitor for changes or warning signs and failure to properly install a prosthesis. Surgical errors often can occur in the emergency room but are no less detrimental because of it.

Surgical error cases often require medical knowledge as well as legal knowledge. They also require extensive resources to fund the expensive and often drawn-out cases. Visit our web page on the subject to learn more.
