Lawyers Helping Patients Recover Financially After Surgery

Every time a surgical procedure is performed, there are known risks related to the procedure. Some injuries or complications during surgery occur without negligence on the part of the medical providers or the hospital where the surgery took place. When surgery is elective, a patient must be told the risks to make an informed decision about whether to consent to the surgery. If elective surgery was consented to, knowing the risks, even a tragic result might not warrant a medical malpractice claim. We can help determine if your claim has merit and we will fight to get you the maximum financial recovery to help you find justice.

Common Surgical Errors

  • Surgical instruments left inside a patient
  • Foreign objects left inside the body
  • Wrong side operated on (i.e.: right knee instead of the left knee)
  • Wrong site operated on (i.e.: the gallbladder removed instead of the appendix)
  • Medication errors during surgery
  • Anesthesia mistakes
  • Severed artery
  • Nerve damage
  • Splitting a muscle
  • Perforation of the bowel
  • Laceration of bladder
  • Laceration of the colon
  • Incorrect patient operated on

Holding a Surgeon Responsible For Their Mistake

Unfortunately, there are times when the risk of a surgery was not fully disclosed or an attending medical provider or resident student acted negligently. Although many times the surgical error is apparent to the surgeon, it is not described or contained in the dictated operative note. Therefore, even a thorough examination of the records may not reveal whether there was a deviation from the standard of care, causing injury. At HPC, our medical malpractice attorneys are familiar with the standard of care in an operating room, and our Phoenix surgery error lawyers can help you determine whether or not you have a claim for a surgical injury. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of surgical error in Arizona, contact our attorneys today so we can help you decide what to do; email us or call 602-910-6779.
