Florida Surgical Error Malpractice Lawyer

Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Plantation, the Palm Beaches and the Florida Keys

Surgical errors are one of the most common types of medical malpractice in South Florida. These errors can result in medical complications, excessive expenses, lost wages, personal pain and suffering, and even death. When a surgeon, attending staff, or hospital makes an error before, during, or after a surgical procedure, you have every right to hold them accountable and seek compensation.

Types of Surgical Errors

Studies estimate surgical errors, including a health care provider leaving a foreign object, like a sponge or instrument inside a patient’s body, happens almost forty times every week. Incredibly, the study also estimates after an operation 39 times a week, performs the wrong procedure on a patient 20 times a week and operates on the wrong body site 20 times a week. The researchers, reporting online in the journal Surgery, say they estimate that 80,000 of these so-called "never events" occurred in American hospitals between 1990 and 2010 - and believe their estimates are likely on the low side.

There are a number of surgical errors that will demand the attention of an experienced medical malpractice attorney. Some common forms of surgical error include:

  • Wrong site surgery
  • Wrong patient surgery
  • Surgical instruments left in the body
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Over- or under-medicated

  • Organ or nerve damage

Surgical errors can result in excessive bleeding, brain damage, infection, and other serious injuries.
