People of all ages undergo surgeries to fix a serious medical issue or otherwise improve the quality of their life. Unfortunately, all it takes is a split second during a procedure for a negligent surgical error to change the lives of an entire family forever. Surgical errors can lead to infection, serious injury and even death. Most errors that occur during surgery are preventable. Common causes of surgical errors include:

  • Surgeon fatigue
  • Miscommunication
  • Recklessness or incompetence
  • Insufficient planning
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Misidentification of patients

In addition to the physical damage, surgical errors can cause emotional trauma for both you and your family.

You Do Not Have To Go Through It Alone

There are many potential consequences of a surgical error, some of which are life-threatening or could cause significant long-term damage. A few potential post-surgery complications include:

  • Nerve damage
  • Scarring
  • Organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Long-term disability
  • Death

If you suffered a preventable surgical error that caused one of these life-altering consequences, you are entitled to compensation and you do not have to handle it alone. Slater & Norris, P.L.C., is here to help.
