Have you suffered from a surgical injury?

Surgical injuries can occur through various types of negligence. The surgeon could accidentally cut an organ or artery in error. The nursing staff or anesthesiologists could make errors in the types of drugs administered or the quantity. A misdiagnosiscould lead to an unnecessary surgery. There can be wrong site surgeries, which include wrong body parts being operated upon, or the wrong side of the body is targeted. Surgical tools can be left inadvertently inside a patient. The patient could have known allergies to certain medications that were administered, leading to severe or deadly allergic reactions. Serious problems such as infections can arise with negligent post-surgical care. These are just a few of the possible ways a patient could incur a surgical injury that is separate from the expected incisions and other procedures connected with surgery.

A surgical injury often will lead to a far longer recovery, and the need for additional corrective surgeries. This could also have an impact on a person's time off from work, or the surgical mistake was so extreme that the patient is incapacitated, never able to work again, or has died. Such an injury can have long-term or permanent repercussions. The worst case scenario is a wrongful death as the result of medical negligence.
