Wisconsin Surgical Errors Lawyers
Although not every surgery results in injury to the patient, the surgical errors that do occur make a patient seven times more likely to die while hospitalized. For those whose injuries are not fatal, surgical errors at least increase your chances for re-admittance to a hospital within three months after the original procedure. During an operation, a surgeon and the medical staff can make a variety of mistakes which may result in severe injury and even death.
If you have suffered from a surgical error resulting in injury, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim that can help you receive financial compensation for your losses. To discuss your case with an experienced legal professional, contact a Wisconsin medical malpractice attorney from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, today at 800-242-2874.
Types of Surgical Errors
Mistakes in the operating room can come from a variety of sources, such as a nurse incorrectly reading your charts. However, there are a number of surgical errors that can arise due to this negligence, such as:
- Wrong Site Surgery
- Surgery on Wrong Patient
- Incorrect Surgical Procedure
- Mishandling of Surgical Instruments
- Improper Suturing
- Post-surgical Complications
These types of mistakes can cause permanent disability, dangerous infections, excessive bleeding, and even respiratory failure.
Something that started as a minor surgical procedure can quickly turn into a dangerous, life-threatening medical problem when doctors and nurses make surgical mistakes.
