Surgical errors represent a profound breach of trust between a surgeon and their patient. When an individual opts to undergo surgery, they are placing their life and health in the hands of their surgeon. Unfortunately, this trust is far too often violated, leaving patients and their families to cope with the serious consequences that surgical errors can entail, ranging from internal injuries to, in the worst cases, wrongful death.
No one should have to pay for the consequences of a surgeon's avoidable mistakes on their own. Fortunately, with the help of committed legal representation, surgical error victims may be able to secure the compensation they need to help them pay for the many costs resulting from their injuries. If you have been the victim of a surgical error in Connecticut, the experienced legal team at the Law Offices of Paul Levin can help you to pursue a claim against those responsible for your injuries.
Common Surgical Errors
Surgical errors can occur for a range of different reasons, and the outcome for patients can vary substantially. However, a few types of surgical errors stand out for being particularly common. These include:
- Wrong Site Surgery
- Surgery on the Wrong Patient
- Incorrect Surgical Procedure
- Anesthesia Errors
- Improper Suturing
- Post-Surgical Complications
While pain and suffering are often the most devastating effects of surgical errors that patients have to deal with, they are far from the only negative consequences. Surgical errors often necessitate further medical attention, which itself can cause ongoing pain and discomfort, as well as incredibly high medical bills that many victims find themselves unable to pay.
