Medical Malpractice Injuries

By Joseph Tosti  Sep. 7, 2010 9:36a

Every day people place their lives in the hands or medical personnel when physical problems arise and many medical procedures are successfully performed. Unfortunately, sometimes negligence or carelessness enters the picture and medical malpractice takes the place of a properly carried out procedure. 

Surgical Malpractice

All surgery involves risks but there are times when mistakes are made by a surgeon, nurse, anesthesiologist or other medical professional where proper caution isn't taken and injury or death occurs. This includes both pre-operative care, during and after surgery. Following are a few examples of surgical malpractice:

  • Errors in administering anesthesia
  • Operating on a wrong body part
  • Leaving a surgical device or instrument behind  (in the patient's body)
  • Surgical error  (operation not performed correctly) 
  • Equipment failure during surgery causing injury
  • Accidental perforation of an artery or organ

Get Competent Legal Help

Surgical malpractice or other medical malpractice can be a tragedy for the injured as well as the family and requires the knowledge and skill of an experienced personal injury attorney to help you attain compensation for the injuries. A lifetime of suffering and damage may result and an investigation should be done immediately to gather evidence for the case. Medical expenses, loss of income (if the injured person was also an income winner) rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering all enter into the case.
