Incompetence and surgical errors

| May 9, 2019 | Surgical Errors

There are countless reasons why surgical errors take place, but in this post, we will take a closer look at incompetence. Unfortunately, incompetent surgeons and medical professionals have caused many people to suffer serious injuries over the years, including fatal injuries, in some instances. Even though a surgeon may appear to be fully competent, they may lack the skills that are required to perform the operation properly. In New York City, and around the country, victims of medical professional negligence should not hesitate to stand up for their legal rights and explore the options that might be available to them.

A surgeon may be incompetent for a number of reasons. For example, a young surgeon may not be very experienced, which may increase the chances of mistakes during an operation. Or, a surgical team may lack the skills that are required to ensure that the operation moves forward smoothly. In some cases, a surgeon who is very experienced with many types of operations may lack familiarity with a particular operation that they have not performed many times. These are just some of the reasons why inexperience and incompetence can occur during surgery, and the consequences can be devastating.

After a surgical error, victims may be struggling with all sorts of physical, financial and even emotional hardships. It is pivotal for those who have experienced a surgical error for any reason to examine their legal options and file a lawsuit, in some cases. We discuss other topics related to medical professional negligence throughout our site.
