New York City Surgical Error Lawyer

Medical Malpractice Attorneys Serving All of New York

Hospitals and medical professionals have a duty to abide by a legal standard of care when it comes to treating patients. While most physicians and nurses are highly skilled and dutiful, negligence does happen and innocent people are injured or killed as a result. One of the ways this can happen is through surgical errors.

Surgical errors include:

  • Performing a surgery on the wrong body part
  • Performing a surgery on the wrong patient
  • Making an error in the administration of anesthesia
  • Leaving a foreign object inside a patient’s body
  • Accidentally perforating or lacerating an organ or nerve
  • Improper post-surgical care

Any of these errors can cause serious, lifelong consequences for a patient, who may have to endure infection, chronic pain, and disability as a result of their doctor’s mistake. If you have found yourself in this situation, you should take action as soon as possible and contact a reputable New York City medical malpractice lawyer who can help you understand your legal options.

Whether your case was caused by a careless action, a negligent failure to act, or a defective medical device or tool, Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. has the resources, in-depth medical and legal knowledge, and unyielding drive to handle the toughest medical malpractice cases. Call us now to discuss the specifics of your case with a member of our team.

Consequences of Surgical Errors

A mistake during surgery can hugely disrupt a person’s life. An accidental infection can keep a patient in the hospital for weeks or months, causing them to lose income from not being able to work while medical bills pile up. Operating on or removing the wrong body part can leave the patient permanently physically disabled. Excessive bleeding may result in blood clots that can have dangerous and potentially life-threatening side effects, such as pulmonary embolism and death.

Victims of surgical errors should take legal action not only for themselves, but to prevent future acts of negligence that may harm others. Damages available in medical malpractice cases may include past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of income and/or earning capacity, rehabilitation costs, and more. Punitive damages may be available in some particularly egregious cases.
