Were You Injured By a Surgical Error?
What Should I Do if I Was Injured During Surgery?
First and foremost, it is important that you seek medical attention as
soon as possible to ensure you are taken care of properly. Do not wait
to seek medical attention, as a minor issue might cause much larger problems.
It is also important that you seek legal representation immediately to
ensure you are protected and compensated for any mental or physical harm
you may have or might endure due to the negligence of a healthcare professional.

How Are Surgical Errors Caused?
There is never a good reason for a surgical error to occur, yet people
continue to suffer the consequences of these mistakes. Common causes of
surgical errors include:
Incompetent surgeon: Oftentimes, a surgeon may not be familiar with the specific procedure
and may make a minor mistake that has a detrimental impact.
Poor communication: The outlined procedure may be poorly planned, meaning that crucial tools
and equipment are not readily available in the time of need.
Incorrect work process: A surgeon may try to shorten the length of a procedure, leaving out crucial
steps and ultimately causing harm to the patient.
Surgeon fatigue: A surgeon might not have properly rested prior to the procedure, allowing
for the mind to be fatigued, overlooking crucial detail in the procedure.
Neglect / negligence: Surgeons might not pay attention as closely as they should, leaving a
larger margin for error during highly complicated procedures.
