To patients, surgery is perhaps the most intimidating of all medical treatments. After all, surgery typically involves the use of scalpels and other cutting implements to reach, repair, and replace unhealthy organs and body parts. It is also fairly common for more intensive procedures to require the use of various anesthetic drugs that are intended to help the surgical patient to lose consciousness during a procedure. That level of submission requires a patient to greatly trust the surgeon, nurses, and other medical professionals involved in an operation.
It is an unfortunate fact, however, that medical malpractice is alarmingly frequent in the operating room, and you may have suffered serious adverse health consequences as a result. Let us help you obtain the financial compensation that you are rightfully owed. Contact the Des Moines surgical errors lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (515) 225-2600.
Common Surgical Errors
In a high stakes environment such as the operating room, it is virtually unavoidable that some mistakes will occur. But some surgical errors defy logic and are simply inexcusable. Negligence of the magnitude required for the following errors deserves swift and severe civil justice:
- Surgical instruments left in the body
- Wrong patient surgery
- Wrong site surgery
- Improper suturing
- Medication errors
The additional medical expenses that you have likely faced as the victim of a surgical error are apt to be substantial, and neither you nor your insurance company should have to bear that weight.
