Seeking compensation following a surgical error

As a patient who needs surgery, you rely on your medical team to give you all the information you need about your health care options. You would want to know if you have a risk of cardiac arrest in the case of an error or if your anesthesia reacts with your body, for instance. When you aren't given all the options or a doctor makes a mistake while operating, you could suffer the consequences.

Everyone knows that surgery has risks regardless of the type of surgery it is. Even a minor surgery has potential side effects and problems that need to be addressed. You need to be given an informed consent form to fill out, and it should have all the major information you need to know about your operation, the drugs you'll be on and what you can expect before, during and after surgery.

Even with an informed consent form, you can't be prepared for every possible complication. If the surgeon nicks a vital organ or fails to operate quickly enough, it could put you at risk. The same is true if surgical equipment is left in your body or if bacteria is allowed to enter the wound through unsafe and unsanitary sterilization procedures.

If you've suffered a surgical error, you aren't alone. Our website has more information on surgical errors and what you can expect if you decide to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the people responsible. You've put your trust into your medical team, so it's only right to make them be held accountable for their actions that have harmed you.
