Contact a Lexington Medical Malpractice Lawyer Today
No matter how small or large a surgical procedure may be, all surgeries come with an element of risk. Unfortunately, part of this risk involves the possibility that an error will be made. This can involve a surgeon’s mistake, an instance of hospital negligence, or an anesthesiologist error. Any mistake involving any stage of a surgical procedure has the potential to cause serious harm or death to a patient.

If you have been injured or have suffered the loss of a loved one, we encourage you to contact a Lexington medical malpractice attorney at our firm to learn more about your legal rights.

How Surgical Errors Occur
Surgical errors happen when a surgeon, nurse, or other hospital staff member fails to give their full attention to a patient and his or her medical history. If you have been injured and are unsure of whether medical negligence played a role, it is a good idea to get in touch with an experienced medical malpractice attorney who can investigate your case and determine whether you have legal recourse.
Surgical errors include:
- Performing a procedure on the wrong body part
- Accidentally leaving a foreign object inside the body
- Failing to promptly monitor the patient and react to any problems that arise
- Failing to consider the patient’s medical history when administering anesthesia
- Accidentally damaging an internal organ
Doctors who cause preventable injury to their patients should be held responsible for the damages that their patients have suffered.
