Surgical Errors – Building a Strong Claim
Surgery is always potentially hazardous to a patient. Thus, it is critical that prior to surgery an appropriate evaluation is completed and the patient is informed of the usual (prevailing) risks of the operation.
When a death or serious injury occurs during surgery, there is a high likelihood of surgical negligence. Negligence can result in poor post-operative care and/or failure to diagnose an injury, infection, or other complication.
Common surgical errors include wrong-site surgery, leaving tools or sponges inside the body, or injuring structures inside the body during surgery. Thus, surgical cases and errors are extremely difficult to evaluate. This is why surgical knowledge and legal knowledge combined give Dr. Sawyer the ultimate advantage in Medical Malpractice cases involving surgical error.
