Helping You Get Justice After A Surgical Error
Every day, hundreds of people throughout New Jersey undergo surgery. Whether it is an emergency operation after a serious injury or a procedure to combat a life-threatening illness like cancer, as a patient you rely on your surgeon’s medical expertise and dedication to your health to get you through the operation safely.
Unfortunately, some operations become disastrous for the patient due to improper conduct by the surgeon or another member of the surgical team. From our office in Springfield, New Jersey, Lee Law Firm, LLC, is ready to help you if you have been injured by a surgical error.
Common Mistakes In The Operating Room
A patient’s health and life are potentially at stake every time he or she goes under the knife. When a surgeon makes a mistake, the patient’s well-being may be in serious jeopardy. The truth is, surgical errors happen much more often than doctors would like to admit. Common surgical errors include:
- Operating on the wrong body part; e.g., the left lung instead of the right
- Leaving surgical tools inside the body
- Performing the wrong operation or mixing up patients
When A Surgeon Makes A Mistake, The Patient Suffers
The consequences of this type of medical malpractice can be severe. The patient can suffer delays in needed medical care, allowing his or her condition to worsen. More directly, mistakes by the surgical team can lead to you suffering severed nerves, infection after surgery and other damage to your health.
