If You’ve Suffered from Surgical Errors, We’re Here to Help

Fighting for Justice Across Alabama & Georgia

Our compassionate and experienced legal team is dedicated to fighting for the rights of those who have been affected by surgical errors. We understand the devastating impact these mistakes can have on patients and their families, and we are committed to seeking justice and fair compensation for those who have suffered as a result of medical negligence.

Understanding Surgical Errors

Surgical errors occur when preventable mistakes happen during medical procedures. These errors can range from minor mishaps to life-altering complications and, in the worst cases, even result in fatalities.

  • Some common examples of surgical errors include:
  • Wrong-Site Surgery: Operating on the wrong body part, leading to unnecessary procedures and complications.
  • Anesthesia Errors: Administering the wrong dosage or type of anesthesia, causing adverse reactions or even anesthesia awareness.
  • Instrument Retention: Leaving surgical instruments, sponges, or other objects inside the patient’s body after surgery.
  • Nerve Damage: Accidentally damaging nerves during surgery, resulting in pain, numbness, or paralysis.
  • Infection: Failure to maintain proper sterilization protocols, leading to post-operative infections.
  • Organ Perforation: Puncturing or lacerating organs or blood vessels during surgery.

The Legal Ramifications

Medical professionals have a duty of care to their patients, and when they fail to meet the standard expected of them, they may be held liable for their actions. Pursuing a medical malpractice claim for surgical errors can be a complex process, requiring a thorough understanding of both medical and legal principles. Our skilled attorneys have the expertise and resources necessary to navigate these complexities and advocate effectively on your behalf.
