What falls under the umbrella of surgical errors?

New York residents expect to be treated with care when they go in for surgery. Unfortunately, mistakes can still sometimes be made. Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, PC, are here to lend guidance and information if you're struggling from an injury you received from a surgical error.

First, you should know that there are many different types of surgical errors that can occur. Medical surgery to the body doesn't have to be the only category that qualifies. Dental work or surgery for cosmetic purposes can also go wrong and cause you injury and pain.

Surgical errors can vary widely. In some cases, they can be debilitating. For example, botched spinal cord surgeries can result in lifelong paralysis. Nerve damage can also occur during surgeries, leaving you in pain or numbed for a long period of time or even permanently. If your surgeon accidentally leaves a tool inside of you after the surgery is complete - such as scissors or sponges - that is also considered a surgical error even if it has nothing to do with the operation going wrong.

Finally, surgical errors can occur due to several reasons. Two of the main ones include the surgeon being under the influence while operating, or possibly being tired. Disorganization can also account for some malpractice cases, as instructions and care get lost in the shuffle.

Unfortunately, surgical errors can have a lasting impact on your life. Fortunately, there are ways of handling these cases that will allow for you to gain compensation for the hardships you have already faced, and may face in the future. If you would like to learn more about that, please take a look at our web page on medical malpractice and surgical errors for more information.
