Types of Surgical Errors

When a person undergoes a surgical procedure, there is always the possibility that an unexpected event will occur, resulting in a serious injury or worse for the patient. In some cases, these are simply the result of unfortunate circumstances. However, in many cases, problems during surgery occur as the result of a surgeon or other medical practitioner’s errors. In these cases, the injured individual or their family may be entitled to pursue legal action against the medical professional responsible for the error.

If you or someone you know has been the victim of a surgical error or other form of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your losses.

Common Surgical Errors

There are a considerable number of different ways in which a patient can suffer a surgical error. However, a few stand out as particularly common. These include the following:

  • Foreign objects left behind in the body cavity
  • Wrong site surgery
  • Incorrect surgical procedure
  • Surgery on wrong body part
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Post-surgical infections

These and other common surgical errors can all pose significant risks to a patient’s health, and therefore those responsible for these errors need to be held accountable for the consequences of their actions.
