Woodstock Surgical Errors Attorneys

Representing Clients in Medical Malpractice Cases Throughout Atlanta & Northern Georgia

Surgical errors can be devastating, but they don’t always amount to medical negligence. All surgeries involve an element of risk. For a surgical error to be considered medical malpractice, the error must be apparent to another surgeon in the same field. The surgeon reviewing the case must state under oath that the surgical error would not have occurred had the surgeon done the procedure correctly and in accordance with the known standard of care.

Surgical error cases are complex and it is vital to have an experienced attorney on your side. The surgical error lawyers from The Dickinson Law Firm can help you get a thorough review of the case to determine if medical negligence occurred.

Examples of Surgical Errors

There are different types of surgical errors that can severely harm a patient. Common types of surgical errors include injuring a nerve during surgery, administering the wrong amount of anesthesia, performing the surgery on the wrong body part, or leaving a piece of surgical equipment inside a patient.

Other common reasons surgical errors occur include:

  • Incompetence: If the surgeon doesn’t have the skills or experience to perform the surgery, it can result in serious harm to the patient.
  • Insufficient Preparation: It is vital for a surgeon to be well-prepared for the operation. This includes having the proper nurses and assistants present to ensure that all equipment is ready and available for the surgery and any other rescue procedure needed for a known surgical risk.
  • Fatigue: People are more likely to make mistakes when they are tired, and there is no exception for surgeons. If a surgeon is not rested or alert for the surgery, it puts the lives of their patients’ in danger.
  • Negligence during the procedure itself: Unfortunately, surgeons aren’t always as careful as they should be. This can include using equipment that is defective or leaving a piece of surgical equipment inside a patient.
